Amy is pursuing her PhD in Immunology with Dr. Ravi Majeti at Stanford University, where she genetically manipulates human cells with CRISPR to uncover the molecular mechanisms of inherited blood cancers. Prior to being in the San Francisco Bay Area, she attended school and worked in Cambridge, MA. She received my B.S. in biology with a minor in Asian diaspora studies from MIT, where she studied breast cancer metastasis and identity in the global Chinese diaspora. After graduating in 2015, she worked on untangling host-pathogen biology using single-cell RNA-Seq at the Broad Institute. At Stanford, Amy has been involved in multiple leadership roles through the Immunology Program, the Biomedical Association for the Interests of Minority Students (BioAIMS), and Black In Immuno. In her free time, Amy enjoys taking care of her plant babies, hiking, and dog-sitting.
