My research area involves understanding the role of EGFR in modulating inflammation and tumor formation/progression in triple-negative and inflammatory breast cancer. I focus on studying the interaction between EGFR and immune components, along with their collective role in the tumor microenvironment.
Hobbies and Interests
I enjoy hiking (Tucson has beautiful hiking spots!), practicing Kendo (Japanese martial art), yoga, and (most recently) indoor rock climbing. I am also a foodie, so when I'm not eating out at a new local spot in town, I very much enjoy cooking (mostly Asian food!).
