Research Experience

  • Bioinformatician - EPPICenter (2017-2020)
    The EPPICenter is broadly interested in studying the transmission patterns of infectious diseases from a molecular epidemiology perspective. In my time there I helped develop and optimize multiplexed genotyping of Plasmodium falciparum, whole genome sequencing of Plasmodium falciparum from low density blood spots, and tools for longitudinal genotyping to understand tranismission dynamics of malaria.


Research Interests

Understanding cell-type specific transcriptional regulation is crucial in formulating mechanistic hypotheses of neurodegenerative diseases. I am interested in applying predictive machine learning tools to single-cell CRISPRi/a and drug screens to identify and predict the underlying transcriptional networks that are dysregulated in disease.
