Graduate Student


I graduated from Purdue University in 2019 with a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering, and in 2020 with a M.S. in Biomedical Engineering. During my time at Purdue, I investigated the role of CD90 in the breast cancer tumor microenvironment and its contribution to tumor heterogeneity. I joined the Cancer Biology program in the Spring of 2021 and am now pursuing my PhD in Dr. Adam Courtney’s lab. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, traveling, and photography.

Research Interests

My project focuses on understanding mechanisms that modify T cell receptor signaling in the tumor microenvironment.
