Biography

B.A., Brown University
Advisor: Eleftherios Mylonakis

Research Interests: Currently, I am using the nematode worm Caenorhabditis elegans as a whole animal infection model to study basic innate immunity pathways during bacterial infection. Using this model, I am most interested in studying immunomodulation mediated by synthetic compounds.
