Biography

I am a post-doctoral MD/PhD student studying regenerative lung engineering in the laboratory of Laura E. Niklason (Biomedical Engineering and Anesthesiology). I am currently using single-cell data to explore cell-cell signaling in the mammalian alveolus, with the ultimate intent of devising a minimal cellular community which can be used to reverse-engineer pulmonary tissue for clinical transplant. Prior to my MD/PhD training, I studied Materials Science and Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where I was a Draper Fellow and worked on tissue micro-fabrication techniques in the laboratories of Linda Griffith (Bioengineering) and Paula Hammond (Chemical Engineering). Prior to MIT, I studied Biomedical Engineering and the History of Art at Yale University and the University of Cambridge. I play the cello as part of the Yale Medical Symphony Orchestra and enjoy finding time to be outdoors and near water as much as possible.
