I grew up around Boston and completed my internship at Beth Israel, but my pronunciation of the letter “R” in words may fool you. In moving to Philadelphia, I already knew that I like any Italian food, but the city has opened my eyes to the tasty variety out there. And, in helping to learn the cityscape, I also run quite a bit.

In pursuing neurology, I started in neurocognitive research and ventured into clinical studies in MS patients, which has developed my interest in neuroimmunology. I also enjoy teaching and aim toward a career as a clinician educator.

Fellowship: Neuroimmunology fellow at University of Pennsylvania
