Research Description

I am interested in the mechanisms of brain injury caused by infection or inflammation within the central nervous system (CNS). As a postdoctoral researcher in the laboratory of Dr. Michael Gale, Jr. in the University of Washington Department of Immunology and a Pediatric Infectious Diseases Fellow at UW/Seattle Children’s Hospital I am currently studying the innate immune mechanisms of Zika virus control. My undergraduate and graduate training was in basic and developmental neurosciences; understanding neural circuits and nervous system dysfunction are some of my primary scientific motivations. As an infectious diseases clinician and translational researcher my career goal is to find ways of boosting immune protection or limiting the deleterious consequences of inflammation on neuronal circuits. I am also actively engaged in teaching and mentoring activities through Seattle Children’s hospital and my basic science work. I am firmly committed to building a future research world that includes women and underrepresented minorities.
