I recently graduated from Cornell University with a B.A. in Biology. I am interested in the interplay between hosts and pathogens during the course of infections, as well as in the use of biologics, such as vaccines, in the prevention and treatment of disease. At Cambridge, I will continue studying these topics by researching host entry by gamma-herpesviruses. By looking at the mechanisms used by the viruses to initially attach to and enter the host, my research may be useful in the development of a vaccine against gamma-herpesviruses in the future.
