I'm a PhD candidate in Biochemistry at UCLA. I am based on the ancestral and unceded territory of Tongva land, also known as Los Angeles, CA. My research uses math modeling to simulate immune response and understand how our immune system is able to distinguish different health threats. In addition to research, I am a huge mental health advocate. As a member of the PhD Balance team, I host our YouTube live video series, Grad Chat.
Brilliant keynote! Fay was very engaging throughout, and shared with us her personal journey through grad school and with mental health. This was really encouraging to hear as graduate students, and Fay addressed and acknowledged many issues which are familiar to many. Highly recommend!
