Growing up, I entertained ideas of becoming an astronomer or journalist, before finding my way to biological research in college. I received my PhD in Genetics and Genomics from Harvard University, where I pursued my dissertation research in a cancer biology lab. In grad school, I had the opportunity to work with and mentor teens and adults from across the world through several organizations, including Clubes de Ciencia México, the Broad Research Comm Lab, and Genes in Space. I love connecting with others over the latest scientific discoveries and learning about the people behind the discoveries. I am thrilled to spend the summer sharing the latest stories in health and medicine as a fellow at STAT!
