Brief Biographical Sketch:

My interest in hepatitis B is a long one -- a close family member of mine was tested positive for the virus before I was even born. Around the bay area and at Stanford, I have been active in hepatitis B outreach and awareness as an intern at the Asian Liver Center at Stanford and an officer of Team HBV at Stanford. I hope to inspire students to become a leader and proponent for the Jade Ribbon Campaign, specifically towards eradicating hepatitis B. I sincerely look forward to teaching this class!
