Personal profile

Research interests

My research is focused on the development of personalized medicine strategies for cancer using genomic technologies with a particular focus on gene regulatory changes associated with breast cancer. I develop and uses bioinformatics and statistical methods for the analysis of high throughput sequence data and identification of biomarkers for diagnostic, prognostic and drug response prediction.


I am committed to all kinds of diversity in my lab and want all trainees to feel welcome and free to express themselves. I truly believe that academic and research enterprises are most effective when they represent a broad diversity of backgrounds, viewpoints, and experiences. I have mentored a number of trainees from under-represented groups. I am committed to understanding and addressing disparities in genomic testing through my own research. I am also working to improve equity, diversity and inclusion through my leadership role in the Cancer Genomics Consortium.
