Utilizing computational modeling and data analytics to identify causative and actionable biomarkers associated with pediatric acute myeloid leukemia (AML).

I am excited to be pursuing an independent research project under the mentorship of Dr. Lau and Lau Lab associates. The primary focus of my research involves integrating computer graphics with scientific visualization to analyze gene expression data from novel pediatric AML trials. Through comparing a variety of patient populations, I am endeavoring to identify biomarkers that may serve as future therapeutic targets. In addition to enhancing my knowledge of bioinformatics, I am working to develop the skills exhibited by members of successful research teams.
