Edit: I now have a post-doc working with Tim Clark, PhD.

I am currently looking into post-doc opportunities. I believe my combination of computational and molecular biology skills, along with my passion for genetics make me a strong candidate for a position in a top research lab in human genetics.

I will be completing my PhD in Human Genetics at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in the next month. My thesis work in Dan E Arking’s lab has focused on the genetics of electrical conduction in the heart, investigating the role of both rare and common genetic variants in humans. As a part of the Cohorts for Heart and Aging Research in Genomic Epidemiology (CHARGE) consortium EKG working group, I have supported up to 23 other analysts working towards a final meta-analysis involving over 95,000 human subjects.

Over the last five years in graduate school, I have obtained a strong understanding of bioinformatics and managing large genotype datasets. I have worked with multiple programming languages and software packages interweaving them together, exploiting their strengths to arrive at a final bioinformatic pipeline. Then helping other analysts run that pipeline on other cohort’s data, working towards a meta-analyized final result.

I also have over three years experience in molecular biology. I have worked with the model organizes Mus musculus, Xenopus, and Arabidopsis thaliana. In additional to basic molecular biology techniques, I have experience with dissection, cryosectioning, confocal microscopy, and bimolecular fluorescence complementation.
