I was born in Cameroon and raised in Wisconsin. In college, I concentrated in chemistry with a secondary field in global health and health policy and then spent two years doing translational HIV immunology research. During medical school, I was heavily involved in student groups engaged in advocating for healthcare access, medical ethics, and peer mentorship in addition to surgical outcomes research. I am excited to join UW Surgery for its breadth and depth in clinical training, robust research pipeline and admirable community of residents. I also cannot wait to find new running routes in the scenic Pacific Northwest.
