Bio: 

I moved from Georgia to SF to join the BMS program here in August 2009. Before that I was at the University of Georgia studying biology and spanish, and working on the immunology of Chagas disease. Since coming to UCSF I have become interested in epigenetic regulation of immune responses, particularly the role of miRNAs in Th2 differentiation and their importance in asthma.
