I am a Postdoctoral Associate mentored by Mark Gerstein at Yale University
My research is focused on understanding how Genomic Variations result in phenotypic variations in eukaryotic genomes, under healthy and pathogenic conditions. I am interested in understanding the origin of genetic variation across and within individuals, populations, and species. In particular large structural variations such as retrotransposition, rearrangements, and translocations. To better understand these topics, I use novel computational methodologies and cutting-edge sequencing technologies to investigate genomes and transcriptomes. The goal of my research is to understand how these variations influence gene expression patterns and, consequently, relate to phenotype variation. Visit my research page to learn more.
