I am a PhD student in the Clinical Pharmaceutical Scientist track in the Center for Clinical Pharmaceutical Sciences in the School of Pharmacy at the University of Pittsburgh.

My research interest is at the intersection of clinical & quantitative pharmacology and onconephrology. Specifically, I investigate the evaluation of kidney function in cancer patients and the impact of decreased kidney function on anticancer drug pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics. I am extremely fortunate to be advised by Tom Nolin. I am also a member of the Small Molecule Biomarker Core.

I previously completed a PharmD with an Area of Concentration in Research and a B.S. in Pharmaceutical Sciences with a Minor in Chemistry at Pitt Pharmacy. I am also a faculty instructor at Kaplan Test Prep in the Pre-Health, Pre-Grad, and Pre-College Divisions.
