I am a DPhil student in Tudor Fulga's laboratory and Tatjana Sauka-Spengler's laboratory in the MRC WIMM. My project focuses on chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells, investigating the consequences of tuned expression in CAR-T cell activation and its therapeutic effects.
Prior to coming to Oxford in October 2017, I received my Bachelor's degree in Bioengineering from Syracuse University. I have worked previously in developing tissue engineering scaffolds for osteogenesis in the Soman Laboratory of the Syracuse Biomaterials Institute. I have also investigated the development of endothelial cells via induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) differentiation for the creation of vascularized skin grafts in the Bilousova laboratory of the Charles C. Gates Center for Regenerative Medicine at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus.
