Graduate Student


I graduated with a B.A. in biology from Columbia University and a M.S. in biomedical science from Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. Currently, I work in the Lyssiotis lab, studying cancer metabolism and immunometabolism in pancreatic cancer. My hobbies include hiking, following the NBA, swinging kettlebells, and trying out new restaurants.

Research Interests

I am interested in elucidating the metabolic cross talk between the tumor microenvironment and pancreatic cancer cells.


Metabolomics, cell culture and mouse studies.
