Graduate Student


I graduated from the College of William and Mary in 2020 with a major in Neuroscience and minor in Computational & Applied Mathematics as a William and Mary Scholar. During undergrad I conducted research focused on characterizing host-virus dynamics using bioinformatics methods. At the NIH my research focused on assessing manual bone age ratings from a radiologist versus an algorithm. In my free time I enjoy running, biking, and being a plant mom. 

Research Interests

My research focuses on understanding how oncogenic drivers influence immune landscape changes in pancreatic cancer.
