Postdoctoral Research Associate



[javascript protected email address]

I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate studying immune cell metabolism and its role in understanding cancer therapy under the direction of Dr. Melissa Skala (Morgridge Institute for Research). This work involves optical metabolic imaging in the Skala Lab as well in vivo murine cancer treatment with Dr. Paul Sondel (Wisconsin Institutes for Medical Research). Ultimately, we aim to translate this work to improve cancer therapy in patients.
