I am from Azerbaijan and Massachusetts. After completing my degree in Biology at Georgetown University, I went on to do my Ph.D. in immunology at Stanford University. In the laboratory of Mark Davis, I studied the role of gamma-delta T cells during malaria. Using single-cell TCR sequencing and gene expression analysis, I uncovered a novel subset of gamma-delta T cells that produce large amounts of M-CSF, which protects against malaria. I joined the Marson Lab in May of 2018 to study T cell transcriptional regulation and TCR biology. Outside of the lab, I look at photographs and make photographs.
