I'm a physician-scientist in training who wants to share my interests.

In my 6th year as a MD/PhD student at UW-Madison, currently working in the Lab of Mrinalini Hoon. My research focuses on the retina, and the neural mechanisms that generate vision and breakdown in blindness. I plan to pursue ophthalmology training and become a retinal specialist.

As an entrepreneur, I am the founder and CEO of Stempath.
