Nadia obtained a B.A. in Molecular and Cellular Biology from U.C. Berkeley, and a Ph.D. from Harvard Medical School where she characterized T cell responses to the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis in a mouse infection model. She then conducted a postdoctoral fellowship at the J. David Gladstone Institutes, where she identified factors in human seminal plasma that potently enhance HIV infection and studied their mechanism of action. Currently, her lab uses ex vivo tissue models and high-parameter single-cell analysis approaches to study HIV transmission and persistence, T cell immunity to SARS-CoV-2, and reproductive health. Nadia is a member of the BMS and Immunology programs at UCSF. Outside the lab, Nadia enjoys the arts, being active, and traveling to faraway places.
