I completed my Ph.D. training at Harvard with Elliott Kieff, uncovering the complex host-pathogen chromatin interactions during viral-driven lymphomagenesis. I next moved west for some warmth and sunshine, where I worked with Garry Nolan at Stanford on technology development and ways to better interrogate biological systems. My current interests lie at the intersection of addressing critical questions in host-disease interactions, through the development and applications of novel spatial technology platforms and computational algorithms. Ongoing work includes the biology of viral pathogenesis, tumor biology, and immune dysregulation.
