I am a Ph.D candidate in the Biophysics program at UCSF. In the Andino lab I study the evolution, characteristics, and structure of the thermostability of Enterovirus. My work focuses primarily on Enterovirus A71 and Enterovirus D68. I have worked also on the DARPA INTERCEPT initiative looking how Defective Interferring Particles (DIPs) can be used therapeutically against diseases caused by poliovirus and rhinovirus.
Outside of my reseach I am the External Vice President, Graduate Division Representative, of the Graduate and Professional Student Association at UCSF. In my capacity in this role I am also one of two representatives for UCSF at the UCGPC.
My CV is here.
