I’m an Associate in VIDD at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (Fred Hutch) in Seattle. I received a PhD in physics at Dartmouth College and was trained in infectious diseases by Dr Josh Schiffer. I study viruses and host immune responses by building population and evolutionary dynamical models. My current work concerns within-host and epidemiological models of HSV, HIV, and SARS-CoV-2.

You can find my updated list of publications here: Google scholar. Or see the details on my CV.

  • My research is funded by a postdoctoral fellowship from the Washington Research Foundation (WRF), a Center For AIDS Research (CFAR) New Investigator Award, and as of summer 2020, an NIH NIAID K25 grant!
  • I’m particularly proud of my work for Hutch United, a grassroots organization devoted to fostering a supportive and inclusive community at Fred Hutch.
  • I am actively looking for a tenure-track position. Please notify me of openings at your institute!
HIV evolution and population dynamics!

I acknowledge that the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center sits on the traditional land of the first people of Seattle, the Duwamish People past and present, and honor with gratitude this gorgeous land itself and the Duwamish Tribe. As a small gesture, I pay rent for this land. I also acknowledge my commitment to becoming anti-racist. To that end, I will continually evaluate myself an identify racist behaviors and dismantle them, holding myself accountable in this effort.
