Postdoctoral Fellow

Lucas received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the University of Mumbai and went on to complete his Ph.D. from the National Institute of Immunology in New Delhi in 2016. He joined the lab in 2017 and since has been working to define why certain antibody specificities dominate an immune response to viral infections, and how the plasma cells that produce these antibodies persist. Outside of the lab, he enjoys going to movies, exploring new locations and cultures as well as enjoying the local cuisine.
