I am interested in the development and implementation of personalized medicine into our modern healthcare system. With newer tools in genomics, proteomics, pharmacogenomics and biomedical engineering, I believe personalized medicine will continue to shape how we practice medicine (prevention, diagnosis, prognosis, and targeted therapies).
In past labs, I have studied novel enzyme kinetics, structures of retinoid transporters in the eye, and microtubule dynamics in the cell. Most recently, I studied single-cell genomics / microfluidics and its many potential applications at the Department of Biomedical Engineering. Here at Stony Brook, I look forward to expanding my research experience and pursue a passion in personalized medicine.
