I graduated from Yale University in May 2017 with an accelerated intensive Bachelor of Science degree in Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology. I was awarded the Edgar J. Boell Prize for my undergraduate research defining nanoparticle kinetics in vivo using quantitative microscopy.
My PhD in Surgery at the University of Cambridge, generously funded by the NIHR BTRU and the Department of Surgery at Yale School of Medicine, will focus on optimizing therapeutic nanoparticle treatments in a normothermic kidney perfusion model. This has presented me with the unique opportunity of transferring surgical and nanoparticle technologies between both institutions of Cambridge and Yale to help bring this technique forward.
After my PhD, I will return to the United States to pursue medical school, with aspirations of ultimately becoming an academic surgeon.
