ABOUT ME

RESEARCH INTERESTS

The advancements made by Next Generation Sequencing and whole exome sequencing are inspiring to me, as progress in this area opens up a wide range of possibilities for the future of genetic testing. I believe it is increasingly important for genetic researchers to understand how to develop and use computational tools to assist with data analysis. I am particularly interested in using bioinformatics in conjunction with genetic data and environmental factors to improve personal genomics.

OTHER INTERESTS

Outside of the sciences, I am an accomplished artist and cake decorator. I also enjoy spending time outdoors, perfecting recipes in the kitchen, and playing tennis. I can often be found in the company of my sidekick, R2-D2.
