Biography

I stand for empathy, inclusivity, diversity, and everything that allows all good and curious people to enter science and be in science.

Research interests: lymphocyte development, immunological memory beyond lymphocytes, neuroimmunology, high-throughput technologies

Lab roles: resident alien, comic relief, support of various sorts (pipetting, conversation), spiritual leader of technicians

Outside of science: literature, judo, Tracy Chapman and Manu Chao, The Art Assignment and Atlas Pro (youtube)

Grew up in Bosnia and Herzegovina; went to UWC Mostar and Tufts University.
