PhD in Biochemistry, Molecular, and Structural Biology (BMSB)

I graduated with my PhD in Biochemistry from UCLA in June 2021. I worked in the Signaling Systems Laboratory advised by Dr. Alexander Hoffmann where I applied math models to simulate immune response and understand how our immune system is able to distinguish different health threats.

BA in Biology with honors
(Class of 2016)

I graduated from New York University where I majored in Biology and minored in Chemistry and Computer Science. My undergraduate research thesis aimed to use protein structure prediction tools to design new proteins that act as drugs to treat neurological disease. This project intrigued me into the field of computational biology. At NYU, I was a Women in Science (WINS) Scholar and a Presidential Honors Scholar.
