    BS in Biological Sciences, minor in Chemistry, Stanford University (2005)
    MD, PhD in Biomedical Sciences (MSTP), University of California, San Francisco. Graduate Advisor: Dr. Zena Werb (2006 - 2014)
    Intern, Department of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco (2014-2015)
    Resident, Department of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco (2015 - 2016)
    Clinical Fellow, Division of Hematology/Oncology, University of California, San Francisco (2016 - present). Postdoctoral Advisors: Dr. Felix Feng and Dr. Alan Ashworth.

    I am a physician-scientist broadly interested in translational oncology and am currently a research fellow in the Feng Lab. My research interests include understanding cancer metastasis and the tumor microenvironment, investigating mechanisms of therapeutic resistance, and identifying novel targets to better treat genitourinary malignancies.
