I completed my PhD in biomedical sciences at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX in 2016. My dissertation was to develop novel single cell sequencing methods to delineate tumor evolution and resolve intratumor heterogeneity in colorectal cancer. My clinical diagnostic training started during my undergraduate studies, in which I earned my bachelor’s degree in molecular genetic technology and obtained my MB(ASCP) certification. Currently, I am a clinical molecular genetic fellow at the University of Chicago, where I am trained in performing and interpreting molecular analyses relevant to the diagnosis and management of human genetic diseases. My research interest is in NGS method developments, in which I aim to maximize sample throughput and improve variant calling in clinical diagnostic testing.
