Currently, I am a doctoral student in the Institute for Public Health Genetics at the University of Washington. The program is interdisciplinary, focusing on genetic analysis and technologies, and also on the ethical, legal, and social issues surrounding genetics. As a result, I have taken courses in genetic epidemiology, epidemiologic methods, pharmacogenomics/toxicogenomics, medical genetics, biostatistics, pharmacokinetics, ethical frameworks, health services, policy development, genetics and the law, and the social implications of genetic technology in public health. In addition to this core, I have taken courses in teaching, science communication, and programming in Python and R.
I am a fellow with Achievement Rewards for College Scientists Foundation, which generously supports graduate students in the pursuit of science, engineering, and medical research.
