What are your long-term career goals?

After completing a BS in biochemistry and statistics, I plan on pursuing an MD/PhD in genetics or cancer biology. As a future physician-scientist, I hope to lead an independent research group that studies the genetic and epigenetic mechanisms exploited and adapted by cancers and develops molecular-guided therapies against cancer.

Please share information about how the pandemic has impacted your research over the last two years.

The COVID-19 pandemic has driven me to learn and explore new computational methods to analyze cancer biology data such as high-throughput drug screens and patient-derived sequencing data.
