I realized my love of molecular biology as a pre-med, Ancient Greek major at Georgetown. After switching gears and graduating with a degree in biology, I worked in Dr. Anthony Fauci’s lab at the National Institutes of Health. There, I provided support for clinical trials focused on developing functional cures for HIV. My interest in public health grew out of a desire to explore the interface between the wet lab and implementation science. As a PhD student at the Yale School of Public Health and as a member of the Grubaugh lab, my goal is to create a dialogue between the bench and the field. Outside of the lab, I spend a lot of time running through East Rock Park and playing the flute. Fun fact: I’m an identical twin.
