Department of Infectious Diseases
Graduate Student, Tompkins Lab

I’m a CBS PhD student in the lab of Mark Tompkins studying the viral immunology and vaccinology of influenza virus. My research focuses on novel vaccine platforms and adjuvants in the context of influenza. Specifically, the immunogenicity of influenza peptides and proteins conjugated to TLR agonists is of keen interest. In addition to my dissertation work, I support projects involving influenza B and highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) virology and immunology.
