I graduated from Indiana University in 2013 with a B. Sc. in Physics and shortly thereafter went onto pursue an MS in Biomedical Sciences at Iowa State University. I’m a graduate research assistant of Pharmacometrics with SMART Pharmacology and I will graduate with my PhD in 2020. My primary duties involve contributing to the group’s collaboration with the Mayo Clinic and Inria by mathematically modeling biological mechanisms of tumor growth and therapeutic intervention. My current research involves modeling the effect of cisplatin-bevacizumab combination therapy in a xenograft model of non-small cell lung cancer (2018 PAGE abstract). I enjoy writing music, hiking, and believe in the power of medicine to widely create positive change. My philosophy of research is best summed up by Richard Feynman who said, “Study hard what interests you in the most undisciplined irreverent and original manner possible.”
