Personal Statement: In my spare time I enjoy reading science fiction and fantasy novels, traveling the world, trying new cuisines, and spending time with friends, Professionally, I am very passionate about studying cancer immunotherapy. I chose WashU for residency because it's a place that uniquely achieves equal excellence in both the quality of clinical training as well as scientific investigation. Most important, however, WashU boasts some of the friendliest and most down to earth people I had met on the interview trail.
