Education

MS, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, University of Pennsylvania, 2013

BS, Chemical Engineering, Tufts University, 2010

Research Projects

Effects of acute and chronic respiratory infections on adeno-associated- virus-mediated gene transfer

Development of antibacterial cationic glucocorticoids

Research Summary

I am working to develop and characterize in vivo murine models of airway infection that can be used to study gene transfer in conditions relevant to cystic fibrosis. I also synthesize various cationic glucocorticoids for applications in treating bacterial infections.
