I am excited to contribute to the Pantophlet Lab, where we explore antibody responses to viruses to design better vaccines. My project focuses on refining antibody display on yeast to improve antibody expression and antigen binding. This work not only deepens our understanding of immune responses but also advances the development of innovative approaches for antibody discovery against viruses that are significant to global health.

Other Interests

You will often find me chilling with friends, watching movies, and listening to music in my downtime. I also enjoy capturing the beauty of nature and architecture through my camera lens. Badminton is another passion – I am always up for a game!
