Hi! Thanks for stopping by.


I am an immunologist and microbiologist interested in probing the host-pathogen relationship to understand the complex biological scenarios that determine tolerance-to and severity-of acute and chronic inflammation. 

I am extremely excited to announce that I have accepted a tenure track position at Portland State University in the Biology Department (starting Dec 16, 2017).

I will be looking for excited graduate students and undergraduate students, and I will be hiring a lab technician early 2018 (previous experience with animal research is a plus). Please contact me if you are interested in joining the lab.

Currently, I am a Post-doctoral Fellow in Denise Monack's lab at Stanford University in the department of Microbiology and Immunology.

When not in lab... you can find me outside camping, hiking, running, drinking spirits on a porch, and lassoing my 3-legged dog.
