My research focuses on studying the links between two major cellular stress pathways in tumour hypoxia. Hypoxic tumours are known to be radio- and chemotherapy resistant and are associated with metastasis and poor patient prognosis. I am interested in studying how the concurrent activation of multiple stress pathways in hypoxic environments may elucidate the malignancy of hypoxic tumours.
I graduated from University of California, Berkeley with a B.A. in Molecular Cell Biology (2017) and minors in Bioengineering and Gender & Women's Studies. I then completed my Masters in Translational Medicine (2018), a joint degree between UC Berkeley and UC San Francisco, during which I worked for an early stage medical device start-up.
