My projects relate to the development of novel CRISPR screening platforms. I completed my postdoctoral training at the EMBL Heidelberg where I focused on the mechanisms underlying lineage segregation during mouse pre-implantation development using single-cell expression analysis. Currently I am a Daichii Sankyo RD Novare Co. Ltd. visiting scholar in the McManus lab and am excited to learn new things in a fantastic training environment. I am also interested in learning more about how to perform computational analysis of big data. I enjoy hiking, cycling, fishing and all the wonderful things the Bay Area offers.
