I joined Upstate’s MD/PhD program in June 2016. I graduated from SUNY Buffalo, where I received my B.S. in Biomedical Sciences. I pursued the MD/PhD program because of my interest in translational research. Conducting research from the bench to the bedside is what I wish to carry out once I obtain my MD/PhD.
I chose Upstate because I really enjoy the feel of Syracuse, as well as the program here. The openness and friendliness of the faculty and fellow students is something that is unmatched anywhere else.
With the free time I have I enjoy running, playing video games, and making sure my betta, Pablo Pescasso, doesn’t die from separation anxiety (no, seriously).
I am currently interested in research in immunology. I did my summer rotation in the lab of Dr. Andras Perl, in the Rheumatology Department, studying systemic lupus erythematosus.
