Research Interests

I was eager to join the IDP in hopes to explore new areas in biology I have not had a chance to explore yet, such as a deeper dive into immunology, cardiovascular diseases, and clinical research. In addition, I have a passion for computational & mathematical biology and hope to incorporate my math background into the research lab I join. I feel that there is so much potential for medical advances when merging two fields such as math and biology.
