Program area(s):   

Bioinformatics

Graduate advisor:   Dr. Matthew Hudson, CPSC

Research:

My research focuses on computational genomics in humans and crops.

Currently, I’m collaborating with the Mayo Clinic to optimize bioinformatics methods to process large-cohort human genome data; the goal of this research is to identify and analyze rare genetic variants associated with Alzheimer’s disease.

I’m also interested in developing bioinformatics tools for plant breeding applications.
