I am a physician-scientist currently completing my training in adult infectious disease. I completed my MD and PhD degrees at UCSD in 2015. My graduate work in the laboratory of Ajit Varki, studying the evolutionarily conserved exclusion of the sialic acid Neu5Gc from the vertebrate brain. I subsequently completed my clinical training in internal medicine and infectious diseases. Currently, I work as a postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Galit Alter at the Ragon Institute in Cambridge, MA, where I study the humoral response to Mycobacterium tuberculosis, with a particular interest in glycan antigens and host antibody glycosylation. I also work as an infectious disease clinician at Massachusetts General and Brigham and Women's Hospitals.
