As a bioengineer, I am focused on building technologies to investigate the molecular logic of cellular decision-making and to understand how hematopoietic stem cells differentiate into various immune cells. I am passionate about pursuing science for the betterment of patients and human health. To learn more about my research, visit here.
I earned my PhD in Medical Engineering & Medical Physics from MIT as a student in the Harvard-MIT Health Sciences & Technology program. I was advised by Drs. George Daley and Paul Blainey, which melded expertise in hematopoiesis, stem cell biology, genomics and synthetic biology. I am currently a Research Fellow at Boston Children’s Hospital and the Broad Institute.
I am a native of Boston, Massachusetts and outside the lab I enjoy sailing, woodworking, traveling the world to experience new cultures, and getting creative in the kitchen.
