Montgomery Street, San Francisco, CA 94105
Professional Overview

Ambitious and independent biomedical engineer/scientist with a passion for immunotherapy and using biotechnology to advance patient care. With 5 years of diverse experience across immunology, cell and gene therapeutics, machine learning, and manufacturing. Leveraged skills in all these areas to optimize processes and design assays and analytical methods to drive progress on industry and academic projects. The most integrative projects being in optimizing a CRISPR gene editing and viral transduction pipeline for CAR-T/HIT T cell production, developing flow cytometry and imaging based assays for detecting fratricide, and developing an ML segmentation and phenotyping tool for tertiary lymphoid structures. With a growth mindset and the ability to manage many projects at once I am a persistent and proven effective collaborator; always looking to build avenues for scientific exchange within and across teams.
