I am a postdoctoral scholar working in Jung Kwon's lab. I am currently working to identify marine-derived peptides with activity in angiogenic, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial assays. Our lab aims to identify beneficial nutraceutical effects of marine products and to minimize marine agricultural waste by identifying alternative pharmacological uses for waste products. My background is in drug discovery/pharmacology, microbiology, and biochemistry. My BSc is from Stanford University, and I completed my PhD in pharmacology at Weill Cornell Medicine.
