I am a postdoctoral researcher interested in understanding diseases through gene expression profiling. Differential gene expression patterns can provide clues to cellular structural changes, cell cycle stages, and metabolic states of the cells or tissues of interest.
I have been working with a variety of gene expression profiling technologies (e.g. microarray, RNA-Seq, CAGE, STRT) looking at gene expression in cell lines, animal samples, as well as in healthy vs. diseased human tissues.
Currently, I am working on linking tumor gene expression patterns, clinical data and breast cancer subtypes in order to improve long-term prognosis for breast cancer recurrence.
