I joined the MD/PhD program at Upstate in 2016. Prior to coming to Syracuse, I graduated from Yale with a BS in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology. I had always wanted to become a physician, but it wasn't until later that I realized that combining my interests in medicine and research was a possibility. Ideally, I'd want my work in the clinic and lab to inform each other and translate to advancements in patient care. Last summer I rotated in the Feng lab in the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology department.
When I visited Upstate, I loved the friendly, welcoming environment and I'm excited to get to know the city and the people better. Outside of the classroom, I enjoy reading, photography, knitting, and various other non-athletic activities.
