I’m a PhD candidate in the Snitkin Lab at the University of Michigan. My thesis research focuses on the genomics of the bacterial species C. difficile. To support my genomic analyses I wrote a software package to perform bacterial genome-wide association studies called hogwash. My degree is in Microbiology & Immunology, but I use computational biology approaches and bioinformatics tools to conduct my research.
If I’m not in lab I’m probably at UM’s Ross School of Business helping out at the Wolverine Venture Fund or olympic weightlifting.
I’m currently looking for a biotech internship in the Bay Area for summer 2020.
