PROPEL Scholar and Staff Research Associate



B.S. in Molecular, Cell, and Developmental Biology - University of California, Los Angeles (2023)

Research Experience:

Brigitte Gomperts Lab, UCLA: July 2021 - June 2023 Assessing antioxidant and cellular senescent mechanisms as potential drivers of aberrant fibrogenesis in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis & Investigating the role of integrin beta-1 in distal airway epithelial desquamation in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis

Research Interests:

I love learning about all aspects of biology, and I am extremely excited to explore the neuroimmune field. I hope to help develop an in-vivo CRISPR screening approach to better understand the molecular mechanisms regulating microglia and their different states.


Outside of lab, I love to spend time with friends and family, bake, play board/card games, and listen to music.
