Director of Bioinformatics at Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago; Assistant Professor of Pathology at Northwestern University.
I have a PhD in Computational Biology from the Joint CMU-UPitt Computational Biology Program at Carnegie Mellon University and currently work as Director of Bioinformatics at Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago and Assistant Professor of Pathology at Northwestern University.
As a scientist , I am intrigued by the power of next generation sequencing (NGS) in clinical diagnostics, and the world of RNA biology. It is my mission to make science more accessible. As part of this mission, I recently started a podcast called Computationally Yours. You can listen to it on all your favorite platforms. My non-work passions include dancing and theater. I have studied Improv at Second City Training Center. I also love to write poetry and paint.

Descriptive "Pharmacogenomics Analysis" of the CBTN PBTA Cohort
Many pediatric brain cancer patients experience toxicities related to the use of vincristine in treatment protocols. Using the Pediatric Brain Tumor Atlas, this study will help to define the frequency of genetic risks for side effects in an effort to lessen the need for treatment reductions.
