Tiffany graduated from the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) with a B.S. in Molecular, Cell, and Developmental Biology in 2015. During her undergrad, she began an internship at the Protein Expression Center at Caltech and later worked in the Bjorkman Lab at Caltech studying the immune recognition of viral pathogens such as HIV, ZIKV, and HEPC. Having gained an interest in developing therapeutics, she is currently pursuing a PhD in Cell and Molecular Biology at San Diego State University through their joint doctoral program with UCSD. The blurb here is too short to include everything, but some of her hobbies outside of the lab include tabletop role-playing games (think Dungeons & Dragons), board games, video games, old films, and reading sci-fi/fantasy books.
