Research & Publications
My research focuses on translational studies of malaria in sub-Saharan Africa with an emphasis on parasite dynamics and treatment pharmacology and how these impact the emergence and spread of drug resistance. I currently work as an MD/PhD student in the Parikh Lab in the Department of Epidemiology of Microbial Diseases at the Yale School of Public Health. My previous research at the University of Texas at Dallas focused on altered cellular metabolism in cancer and other pathological conditions. I was previously enlisted as a cavalry scout in the US Army and deployed twice in support of Operations Iraqi Freedom and New Dawn. Afterwards I earned a BS in Biology and a MS in Biotechnology at UTD before joining the MD/PhD program at the Yale School of Medicine in 2017.
