I am a PhD student studying the role of B cells and their antigenic targets in anti-tumor immunity from both a fundamental and translational perspective. My other scientific interests include Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR)-T cell therapy and oncolytic viruses as well as exploring ways to combine them.
