I am currently pursuing a PhD in bioinformatics. My dissertation work involves exploring the impact alternative splicing has on complex genetic disorders by utilizing RNA-Seq data. Some of these impacts include: basic differential expression in a variety of models and species, predicting alternative splicing interactions and pattern recognition. My career goal is to be a group leader in a hospital setting where I can bring high throughput next generation sequencing data to the patient bedside.
