About

Biography

I learned about bone marrow transplantation as an undergraduate at the University of California Los Angeles, where I worked in a hematopoietic stem cell lab — and I was hooked! It's amazing how these stem cells can completely recreate the human blood system.

Children are so fun, and I love working with them. They can surprise you each day when you walk into their room. In my practice, I remind myself of what it's like to be a patient, what the patient's and family's goals are and what I can do to help.

In my research, I’m exploring the quantitation of intestinal permeability and how that may correlate with adverse outcomes after a stem cell transplant.

During my free time, I enjoy exploring the outdoors and improving my cooking skills.
