Eric worked for a few years in a biotech startup called Arbele, aiding in designing, generating, and testing novel antibodies and CAR T-cells against colorectal and hematologic cancer antigens. During this time, he developed an interest in the clinical/patient care side of things. From there, he began scribing at Swedish Emergency Departments as well as volunteering with the Crisis Text Line and Autism Treatment Center of America in order to understand what it would be like to provide care for others. The COVID pandemic has made him very interested in vaccine research, and given how tied in it is with my prior interests in immunology, he felt that joining CVVR would be a good direction for me to head in prior to pursuing an M.D. in the future. In his free time, he enjoys drawing, calisthenics, and weightlifting.
