I’m a developmental and computational geneticist at the University of Melbourne where I combine classic developmental biology techniques with high through put sequencing technology to study gene expression and regulation during embryogenesis.
During my PhD I focused on elucidating the general mechanism of urethra development, describing the molecular regulation of EphrinB2 during this process, and discovering genes involved in a top birth defect. I also contributed to the computational aspects of several other projects while in the lab.

More About Me
I earned my Bachelor of Science from the University of Connecticut in 2010 studying Molecular and Cell Biology.
I completed my Master of Science in Genetics, Genomics, & Bioinformatics at the University of Connecticut where I studied and applied computational biology techniques to understand the impact of genomic mutations on mouse development.
My interests beyond computational biology include writing music, following trends in renewable energy, electric vehicles, and space travel, and spending as much time as I can with my partner Ana and our little Cavy, Toby.
