I investigate targeted adjuvanted biomaterials to improve vaccination platforms, especially in cancer immunotherapy.


Originally from the island of Mauritius, I earned a double Bachelor's degree in Chemistry and Biology at the University of Rochester, where I focused on nanoparticle characterization in the context of allergic contact dermatitis in the DeLouise Lab. I started in the PME PhD program in 2015 where I am co-advised by Dr. Melody Swartz and Dr. Jeffrey Hubbell. On campus, I am involved with PME social circle, the multi-cultural graduate committee, the IMPACT mentorship program, and ballroom.
