I earned my Ph.D. degree in Molecular Medicine from the Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute in La Jolla in 2009, under the guidance of Dr. John C. Reed. Immediately thereafter, I embarked on my postdoctoral career in Dr. Tony Hunter’s laboratory at the Salk Institute, also in La Jolla. My postdoctoral project endeavors to uncover the role of autophagy in cancer, and the accompanying elaborate interplay between tumor suppressors and transcriptional repressors. Outside the lab, besides pondering on scientific themes, my other passions include reading books by my favorite British authors, British cars, and listening to Mozart and Beethoven while driving north along the dramatic California coast, bringing energy and inspiration back to the bench.
