    Postdoctoral Medical Fellow, Infectious Diseases

    Bio I have a background in the execution of molecular biology research as a former laboratory technician for 5 years during and following my undergraduate degree in molecular, cellular, and developmental biology. I also have a background in epidemiology and statistics through my MPH at UC Berkeley during which time I mastered the application of meta-analysis and systematic review techniques to infectious diseases topics, in particular in my masters thesis on HIV directly observed therapy. In addition, my years at Stanford as an internal medicine resident, infectious diseases fellow, and immunocompromised infectious diseases fellow have further developed my desire to address important translational questions that will improve the clinical outcomes of the patients that I care for on the stem cell transplant service. I hope to find therapies that might safely and effectively supplement and even take the place of antibiotics for prophylaxis and treatment of GVHD and infectious complications.

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Infectious Diseases

    Bio I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Medicine. Prior to my arrival at Stanford, I completed my PhD studies in the laboratory of Prof.Guy Shakhar in the Department of Immunology at the Weizmann Institute of Science. While studying at the Weizmann Institute, I contributed to a number of projects working on both in vivo rodent models and on freshly isolated lymphocytes in vitro. My projects involved investigation of immune cell behavior, function and interactions. Over the course of my graduate career, I gained comprehensive knowledge in time-lapse microscopy of living cells and became an expert in intravital two photon imaging of anesthetized mice.
    My educational and occupational path has given me experience in the fields of biotechnology, engineering, analytical chemistry and immunology. These diverse experiences have opened my mind to new complex questions and given me the confidence to take on challenging projects. Looking forward to my time as a Postdoctoral Fellow, I am excited to apply the knowledge I have gained to the pressing problems currently facing the field clinical immunology.
