I will be completing my final year of BSc in Microbiology at the University of Victoria as an Honours Student in the Lum Lab. I have a genuine interest in both immunology and oncology, and I hope to apply my learnings and experiences in a clinical setting in the future.
Outside of school and work, I enjoy playing soccer, listening to crossover (classical opera singers singing pop) music and playing board games with my friends.

For my Honours project, I will be investigating if the forced expression of a pH-regulating protein, Carbonic Anhydrase IX, on an effector T cell would enhance their survivability and immunosuppressive function in the oncogenic and hypoxia-triggered tumor microenvironment.
