Research Interests:

I am junior Biomedical Engineering Major at Johns Hopkins University focusing on Genomics and Systems Biology. I’m interested in pursuing a PhD in bioinformatics/computational genomics, and to help prepare me for this goal, I’m applied to the Harvard REU summer program, of which the NSF-Simons Institute is a participating institute. This summer, I am working at Dr. Extavour’s lab to annotate the miRNAs in the cricket genome, and if possible, then to use that annotation to analyze RNA-seq libraries from cricket brains.
