Hometown: Fairfax Station, Virginia
Undergraduate institution: Virginia Tech
Undergraduate major: Systems Biology
My research interests are: My research interests include bioinformatics, single-cell analysis, immunology, and vaccine research.
Career track: Both Industry and Academia
My career goals are: In my career, I hope to perform computational research that can boost our understanding of B cells/vaccines and inform the development of novel therapies.
I have technical expertise in: single-cell analysis, R, Python, high-performance computing, sequencing library preparation (10X and SmartSeq), PacBio sequencing.
I chose QBS because: The interdisciplinary and collaborative nature of the program is the ideal fit for me, considering my background in both wet-bench and bioinformatics research and my undergraduate studies in Systems Biology. The program will help me develop the necessary skills for a successful career in computational research.
Recreational Interests: Outside of the lab, I enjoy cooking, baking, rowing, and hiking!
