About Me

Stanford Immunologist studying the microbiome

I am a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford School of Medicine in Dr. Justin Sonnenburg's lab in the department of Microbiology and Immunology. During my PhD with Dr. Garry Nolan, I developed experimental and analysis pipelines for performing high-dimensional immune system profiling on patient samples using mass cytometry (CyTOF). Now in my postdoc I am working on integrating immune profiling with tracking changes in the gut microbiota in response to dietary interventions. In doing so I hope to better understand microbiome-immune interactions and our capacity to target them as a therapeutic.

Here's my CV.

I grew up in Berkeley, California and went to college at UC Berkeley. I now live in San Francisco. When I'm not analyzing data I like to spend my time hiking, cooking, traveling, and playing with dogs.
