About Me

Born and raised in Las Cruces, NM, I drove across the country (with my three dogs) to start my training at Yale School of Medicine in 2015 as an MD-PhD student. Now I'm in my 7th year (out of 9 years) and am planning to pursue my residency training in neurosurgery. I'm currently pursuing my PhD in Genetics under the mentorship of Dr. Murat Gunel.

I'm a passionate person with many interests and abundant energy to pursue them: neurosurgery, precision medicine, emerging technologies, equity in healthcare, medical education, biomedical ethics, anatomical illustration, outdoor adventures, animals, environment & climate change.

This is my digital portfolio where I hope to share some of these passions with you.
