Post-baccalaureate Student

I’m a post-baccalaureate student and PennPREP Scholar at the University of Pennsylvania. I obtained my B.S. in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry from the University of Pittsburgh.

My research aims to biophysically characterize interactions between highly polymorphic Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) molecules and their vast peptide repertoires. These fundamental stabilizing interactions may give us insight into understanding the molecular basis of MHC antigen presentation.

Outside the lab, I love exploring my passion for creative work through drawing, painting, and film photography!
