Associate Professor, Vaccine and Infectious Disease and Clinical Research Divisions
Attending Physician, Infectious Disease Service, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center
Associate Professor, Medicine, University of Washington
I trained in Internal Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston, MA; Transplant Infectious Diseases at the University of Washington/Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center, Seattle, WA; and epidemiology/biostatics at the Harvard School of Public Health, Boston, MA. I serve as an attending physician on the Immunocompromised Host Infectious Diseases Service at the University of Washington Medical Center and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center. My research group is focused on clinical and translational studies to improve preventive and treatment strategies for infections in immunocompromised hosts, such as patients receiving hematopoietic cell transplantations (HCT) and CAR-T cell therapies.

I trained in Internal Medicine at Lausanne University Hospital in Switzerland, where I also completed my Infectious Diseases fellowship. I joined the Hill group right after to pursue my post-doctoral fellowship, conducting clinical and translational research in the new and exciting field of infections after novel cancer immunotherapies such as CAR-T cell therapies. Joining the Hill group is a unique opportunity to conduct impactful research that can help improve our patients’ care while working in a scientifically stimulating environment.
I am the Project Manager for the Hill Group. I received my degree from the University of Washington in Public Health and Nutritional Sciences. I have experience conducting investigator-initiated and industry-sponsored clinical trials in infectious diseases. Most recently, leading a team conducting a multicenter investigator-initiated trial of smoking cessation in people with HIV at the Seattle Institute of Biomedical and Clinical Research. I'm excited to help the Hill Group expand on improving patient outcomes and reducing disparities to improve delivery and quality of care through clinical research. In my free time, I enjoy yoga, swimming, or spending time with my husband and two kids.
I am a Clinical Research Coordinator in the Hill Group. In 2020, I graduated with a degree in Biochemistry from Amherst College in Amherst, MA. I am excited to be back in the Seattle area, and I am especially looking forward to the opportunity to engage in infectious disease research and gain a deeper appreciation of all the work that goes into improving patient care and outcomes. I hope that through my position here, I can gain a more nuanced understanding of medicine as well as support the efforts to help cancer patients live longer, healthier lives. In my free time, I enjoy reading and taking long walks.
I am a Clinical Trials Assistant for the Hill Group. I graduated with a BS in Biology from the University of British Columbia. I am excited for the opportunity to work with this research group and support our mission to improve healthcare for immunocompromised patients. I look forward to engaging in infectious disease research and patient care to support the efforts to improve health outcomes for our patients. I am excited to work in a scientifically stimulating environment and collaborate with experts in the field to come up with innovative ways to help cancer patients live longer, healthier lives. In my free time, you will find me baking, reading, and exploring the outdoors.
I joined the Hill Group in 2021 as a Clinical Research Coordinator. I acquired my Bachelors of Science in Biology with emphasis on Cellular and Molecular Biology from the University of Washington and spent several years working for Seattle Children’s Hospital as a Pediatric Clinical Research Specimen Coordinator and Research Tech before making the switch to Research Coordinator at Fred Hutch with the Hill Group. I am excited to work with this team to help push science and medicine forward in new and exciting ways that also offer an opportunity to help the world/community around me. In my free time you will often find me working on art (painting/drawing), playing guitar, or exploring the pacific northwest via hiking/kayaking/camping/fishing.
I joined the Hill group in 2022 as a Clinical Trials Assistant. Prior to joining Fred Hutch, I earned my BS in Biology from the University of Washington. This amazing team is working to better understand the immunocompromised status of individuals with cancer so that they can receive better and more comprehensive treatments in the future. I am excited and grateful for the opportunity to help further this research and to work closely with the team, organizational partners, and research participants. In my free time, I enjoy cooking, reading, and exploring restaurants in the city with my husband.
I joined the Hill Group in 2021 as a Clinical Research Coordinator. I earned my BS in Molecular, Cellular, & Developmental Biology with a minor in Biomedical Research from UCLA in 2020. Prior to the Hill Group, I worked in Clinical Research with the UCLA Emergency Medicine and Ophthalmology Departments before moving up to Seattle. I'm excited to help the Hill Group's projects in infectious disease and look forward to supporting the scientific efforts that go into improving patient care. In my free time, I love to play volleyball, bake, and graphic design!
I am a Research Technician for the Hill Group, where I started in late 2022. I graduated from the University of Washington in 2022 with a BS in Microbiology here in Seattle, Washington. I have always wanted to learn more about the research community, and I am excited to be able to put my skills to work towards helping those with weakened immune systems. I look forward to refining my understanding and skills on the research side of healthcare and anticipate learning about all the innovative treatment methods that infectious disease research has to offer. When I am not at work, I enjoy watching movies, reading, cooking, snowboarding, and being outdoors.
I am a Clinical Trials Assistant for the Hill Group. I graduated with a BS in Biology and BA in Spanish from the University of Maryland in 2022. Prior to working at Fred Hutch, I worked a research assistant at the National Institutes of Health, University of Maryland School of Medicine and Johns Hopkins. I am excited for the opportunity to work with this research group to find innovative ways to protect immunocompromised patients and improve healthcare. I look forward to engaging in clinical research and patient care to gain a deeper understanding of infectious disease medicine and grow as a researcher. In my free time, I enjoy reading, hiking, and playing piano.
