Career Path: 

I was an economics major when I first started my undergrad at UCI and later switched to a quantitative economics major. It was not until my third year when I decided to double major in chemistry, and I went straight to JHUSOM for my PhD studies in biological chemistry. During my PhD, I was selected as a Johns Hopkins-AstraZeneca scholar and spent half of my time doing research in an industry setting at AstraZeneca. Currently, I am a postdoctoral research fellow at the Cancer Research Cancer of HMS/MGH.
