Student Profile:

I completed my undergraduate degree in Biochemistry at SUNY Geneseo (Phi Beta Kappa) in 2017 before joining Upstate's MD/PhD Program. My PhD research focused on the role of serum IgA during antibody-dependent enhancement of dengue virus infection.
Broadly, my research and clinical interests are in immunology and infectious disease. In particular, I am interested in causes and novel treatments of severe infections, especially inborn errors of immunity and bacteriophage therapy, respectively.
