For a complete CV and references please contact me using the information available on my Contact page.

Briefly, I completed a Bachelor of Science with Honors in Biochemistry and Biology in 2002, followed by additional university training in computer programming. I worked as a molecular biologist and then as a computational biologist during 2003-2004 before beginning a PhD in Medical Genetics and Bioinformatics at the University of British Columbia. I defended my PhD thesis in December, 2009, and my diploma was awarded in May 2010. During 2010, I was employed as a Bioinformatics Postdoctoral Fellow at the Genome Sciences Centre, a department of the British Columbia Cancer Agency in Vancouver, Canada.

I am now employeed as an Assistant Professor of Genetics and as an Assistant Director of the McDonnell Genome Institute at the Washington University School of Medicine. My research program is focused on the use of genomics and bioinformatics methods for the development of precision medicine in cancer. For more details refer to the research and publications sections.
