Research Interests

As a PhD student, my research focused on understanding the skin intrinsic mechanisms responsible for the development of atopic dermatitis. As a postdoctoral fellow in the Roncarolo/Bacchetta groups, my current research interest focuses on the induction of antigen-specific Tr1 cells in the context of food allergy and transplantation. Outside of the lab, I enjoy hiking in the beautiful Bay Area, travelling, cooking and playing board games. 


Stanford Fellowships

  • Stanford Child Health Research Institute Postdoctoral Fellowship (2015 - 2016)
