What are your long-term goals? 

My long-term goal is to become an established physician-scientist. I look forward to continuing to advance my endeavors in cancer prevention and control in this capacity. 

Please share information about how the pandemic has impacted your research over the last two years. 

While my research is based on population level-data and adjusted quite well to the work-from-home model that most institutions switched to, my research was impacted by the disruption of in-person human interactions that boosted team efficiency and productivity. I had also planned several skills-based workshop sessions for the final year of my postdoctoral fellowship at MD Anderson, most of which had to be canceled due to the pandemic.
