About Me

I joined Alana Welm’s lab in 2014 as a postdoctoral fellow and in 2021 accepted a position as a research assistant professor. My research focuses on understanding the receptor tyrosine kinase RON, and its isoform short-form RON (sfRON), in breast cancer metastasis and tumor dormancy. In addition, I am working to evaluate new compounds that target RON and sfRON for their therapeutic efficacy in metastasis models. When I’m not in the lab, I like to be outside on my mountain bike, camping, or climbing indoors.
