I apply genomic technologies and methodologies to the study of rare diseases and cancer. I enjoy working on cross-disciplinary projects and have performed analysis of preclinical experiments, clinical trial data, whole genome/exome sequencing, RNA-seq and genome-wide association. Of particular interest to me are the growing fields of personalized genomics (rare disease diagnostics and cancer), machine learning and artificial intelligence, translational medicine and the genetic basis for disease and phenotypes.
