A proud Vietnamese from Hanoi, I inherited the passion for healthcare from my pediatrician Dad and started helping out at his clinic since high school. My time spent caring for sick children, coupled with my BS in Mathematics, instilled in me an interest in infectious disease modeling, both on a geographic and on a genomic level. When COVID-19 hit last year, I took advantage of my pseudo gap year at home to pursue internships on antimicrobial resistance and influenza-like-illnesses, finish my senior year, and practice my barista skills. Here in the Grubaugh Lab, I am assisting the data portion of our SARS-CoV-2 genomic surveillance project in Connecticut. When not busy with school and lab work, I enjoy drinking good coffee, taking film photography, traveling, and cheering for Liverpool FC. And I miss driving around on my moped at home.
