I am a Ph.D. student in the Biological and Biomedical Sciences (BBS) program at Harvard. My current research involves defining novel adaptations cancer cells acquire in order to overcome certain forms of nutrient stress. I am an Italian girl hailing from NJ, so naturally my number one hobby is food! I enjoy cooking, eating, and sharing new food experiences with the ones I love. When I’m not in lab or eating, I am playing my guitar or hiking with my wife and dog around New England!
