Personal Information

I am a biophysical chemistry Ph.D. student who uses spectroscopy to study the folding dynamics of Influenza A H3N2 hemagglutinin and to investigate what role does protein conformation change plays in protein-mediate membrane fusion. I also acquired professional experience in technology transfer and science communication through internships and fellowships. Outside of research and professional development, I am heavily involved in advocating for women in STEM as the current communication director of the Association for Women in Science (AWIS) Georgia Chapter and led the AWIS Emory graduate group as the president in 2019.
