    I am an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Experimental Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco. My laboratory focuses on understanding the mechanisms that promote the formation of effective and durable CD8+ T cell immunity to viral pathogens (e.g., HIV, SARS-CoV2) and vaccination at different stages of human development.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
