I study how emerging facets of nuclear architecture respond to or facilitate phenotypic changes in stem-like breast cancer cells. The spatial organization of chromatin, controlled formation of nuclear envelope invaginations, and activity of nuclear bodies are all coming to light, and I look forward to exploring what implications these activities have in the development of this disease.

I am an Applied Physics Ph.D. student, co-advised by Professor Warren Zipfel. I received my B.S. in Physics and Mechanical Engineering from the Ohio State University in 2019. I love playing and sharing music, playing soccer or field hockey, reading, and running.
