I am a PhD student in the Biostatistics Department at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, where I currently work on projects involving high-throughput genomic data. Under the direction of Professor Jeff Leek, I am evaluating and developing methods for the analysis of RNASeq data – in particular understanding the variability of transcript assembly and expression quantification. My work with Professors Robert Scharpf and Ingo Ruczinski involves designing a pipeline for the identification of CNVs in disease subpopulations in a familial sharing context – to elucidate candidate regions for further research.
I’ve also spent a summer working at Pacific Biosciences with Elizabeth Tseng on quantifying variability in the long sequencing reads produced by PacBio machines and evaluating new applications of these unique reads.
