Graduate Student


I received my BS from Oakland University in Cellular and Molecular Biology. During my undergraduate career I did research in Acute Myeloid Leukemia. I graduated from Oakland University in 2021 as an Honors College Member, Legacy Scholar, Distinguished Scholar, and with departmental honors.

Since moving to Ann Arbor, I have spent most of my free time outside with my rescue dog hiking and camping! I also enjoy reading, cross-stitching and watching competition reality shows.

Research Interests

My research is focused on developing novel treatment strategies involving radiation, DNA damage inhibitors and immune checkpoint blockade. My main project is currently focused on combining PARP inhibition and radiation in pancreatic cancer.
