Research Data Analyst

I'm interested in a computational systems genetics approach to mediation analysis of complex traits in mice.

My research interests lie at the intersection of mathematics and molecular biology. I recently graduated from The University of Connecticut with a degree in Applied Mathematics. During my time there, I worked at UConn Health's Center for Quantitative Medicine, employing a dynamical systems approach to identifying reversion targets for a subtype of Triple Negative Breast Cancer. I also spent a summer working at Metrum Research Group, where I developed a physiologically based pharmacokinetic model to predict maternal and fetal exposure of drugs metabolized by Cytochrome P450 enzymes in pregnant women. As part of the Churchill lab, I am using bayesian statistics to develop a new approach for mediation analysis of complex traits in mice.
