I am a sixth-year PhD candidate in the Graduate Program in Genetics and Genomics (GPGG) and the Bonegio laboratory. During my third and fourth years I completed a two year academic “Immunology Training Program” (ITP) Pre-doctoral Fellowship. My doctoral research focuses on the contributions of a suspect gene to the pathogenesis of the autoimmune disease Lupus. The goal of this research is to discover and define some of the genetic differences, transcriptional changes, and signaling pathway variations that favor or lead to the development of Lupus – so that the lab can then begin to search for ways to target them therapeutically.

I am passionate about science in general, and I greatly enjoy both teaching and politics. My long-term goal is to take the scientific knowledge, critical thinking abilities, and multiple communication skills that I have acquired while working on my PhD and translate them into a career in either education, politics, scientific public outreach, or science advisory, advocacy, or policy.
