Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai

I am currently a PhD Candidate at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. My thesis work consists of dissecting single-cell dynamics of immune cell populations in a zebrafish model of Inflammatory Bowel Disease. I also use complementary in vitro approaches to primarily understand the contribution of key monocyte populations to the chronicity of Crohn’s Disease.

Outside of the lab, I love taking advantage of all that NYC offers, including, but not limited to, running in Central Park, yoga classes and cheap eats around the city!
