Title:

  • 5th Year Graduate Student in HSPH BPH Program

Education:

  • B.S. in Biochemistry; Minor in History of Science, UCLA

Research Interests:

I am interested in the role of the innate immune system in diseases such as cancer, obesity, and infectious disease. In the Horng lab I am currently studying nutrient sensing in macrophages and how this may affect their function and polarization. We believe further understanding of macrophage biology will have important implications in treating a variety of human diseases.
