What I like best about Boston: My favorite part of Boston is the esplanade along the Charles River.  I also love visiting the seals in front of the Boston aquarium.

Extracurricular Activities: I enjoy spending time with my friends and my cat.  I am always looking for new places to listen to live music.  

Dissertation Project: My research focuses on the tumor microenvironment, and how it shapes the immune system's response to cancer. I am also interested in how genetic factors influence the immune system.
