    Personal profile

    Research interests

    I am interested in intestinal biology during states of health, inflammatory disorders such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, and colon cancer. Through research, I seek to understand and modulate disease-relevant cell signaling pathways. The goal of my research is to contribute to the field of intestinal biology in a manner that will ultimately improve patient care, while building a community of support and inclusion.

    Education activities and interests

    I am an active member and advisor in the Mentorship to Enhance Diversity in Academia (MEDA) program. Our mission is to enhance the training experience and long term success of trainees from underrepresented groups in the STEM fields through purposeful connection to mentors, sponsorship, and development of a supportive community.
