Postdoctoral Fellow

Google Scholar Profile

I completed my Ph.D. in Human Genetics at the Radboud University Medical Center, the Netherlands in December 2015. I joined the Chakravarti lab as a postdoctoral research fellow in November 2016. My projects primarily involve sequencing and genotyping methods to further understand the roles of RET, SEMA3, and NRG1 gene loci in Hirschsprung disease biology.
