I am gay and I am a cell biologist. //

I’m an MD-PhD student getting my MD from Weill Cornell Medicine and my PhD in Cell Biology from The Rockefeller University. In the lab I’m interested in how intermediary metabolism impacts stem cell fate decisions. Growing up in a conservative community in rural Pennsylvania, I didn’t know any other queer people of color, which has propelled me to additionally invest my time in mentoring younger POC and LGBTQ+ people who are interested in biomedical science.
