I graduated from the University of California Irvine, with a B.S. in chemistry in June 2012. My undergraduate research was under the direction of Chris Vanderwal and included a summer internship at Amgen in 2011. Currently at Scripps my research is focused on developing monocarboxylate transporter 1 and 4 (MCT1 and 4) inhibitors based on homology models of MCT1 and MCT4.  Another project I am pursuing is the synthesis of signal transducer and activator of transcription  3 (STAT3) specific inhibitors for the development of cancer therapeutics
