I was born in Timisoara, Romania and grew up in Toronto. I earned my bachelors degree from Princeton University, where I majored in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. I then worked as a Research Technician in a signal transduction lab at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, where I explored changes in radiosensitivity conferred by knocking out different repair pathways. I went on to earn my medical degree, as well as my masters in public health, from SUNY Downstate College of Medicine, where I was elected to Alpha Omega Alpha. During my time at Downstate, I was involved in radiation oncology clinical research, focusing on the treatment of gastrointestinal malignancies. I then completed my transitional year internship at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
