After completing my PhD in Genetics at Baylor College of Medicine, I joined St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as a Bioinformatics Research Scientist. The focus of my current work is to discover genetic basis of childhood cancer predisposition. During my PhD, I developed bioinformatic approaches (ADmiRE) to understand the impact of microRNA single nucleotide variation in human population and disease datasets.

Research Interests

  • Cancer predisposition in childhood and adult cancers.
  • Understanding the role of non-coding RNA (microRNA) sequence variation in human population and diseases.
