I received my PhD from Weill-Cornell Medical College. I am an American Cancer Society fellow in Dr. Alexander Rudensky's laboratory, where I have established oncogene-driven breast cancer models to investigate the role of regulatory T cells in cancer progression and preclinical immunotherapeutic strategies. I am particularly interested in the crosstalk between immune and cancer cells in the tumor environment, and how they influence the evolution of the tumor.
