Hear my name

I am a bioengineer by training. Currently I am a post-doctoral research fellow collaborating with Dr. Grace John-Stewart at the Global WACh in the Department of Global Health (DGH) at the University of Washington. Outside the DGH, I collaborate with the Lutz lab at UW Bioengineering, the Molecular Information Systems (MISL) lab at UW Computer Science Engineering, and the UW Center for Environmental Forensic Science (CEFS).

I hold several international positions: a Research Officer position at the Kenyan Ministry of Health and a Faculty Lecturer position at the Faculty of Associated Medical Sciences at Chiang Mai University in Thailand. Additionally, I serve as an External Faculty for the Master's Program in Forest Biology at Kasetsart University in Thailand. 

I am a 2022 UW/Fred Hutch CFAR New Investigator Awardee, a 2022 SEATRAC New Investigator Awardee, a 2022 Thrasher Research Fund Early Career Awardee, a 2022 and a 2023 UW ITHS Early Investigator Catalyst Awardee, and a member of the 2022 UW CoMotion RAISE cohort, which partners with WellAcademic. I am a PI and the initiator of a project funded by the 2022 UW Population Health grant. I am a 2023 UW Global Innovation Fund recipient, initiating the UW-Thailand-Dx circle program. As part of this initiative, I developed a capacity-building workshop for Chiang Mai University on "Academic Writing for NIH Proposal and Technology Transfer from Innovative Ideas to Commercialization"

Lastly, I was selected as the 2023 Mistletoe Research Fellow, offered by Momental Foundation, and the 2024 recipient of the Rice360 Innovation and Leadership in Global Health Award, offered by the Rice360 Institute for Global Health Technologies.
