Biography:

Howdy! Orignially from San Antonio, TX, I graduated from Texas A&M Univeristy in 2017 with a B.S. in Biology and a minor in Genetics. I completed my MS in Bioinformatics at GA Tech in 2019, with my research focus on fine-mapping eQTL and identifying causal variants responsible for altered gene expression associated with Crohn's disease. I have now switched my research focus as a PhD student to characterize B cells using single cell RNA-sequencing and single cell ATAC-sequencing data in the context of systemic lupus erythematosus and patients infected with COVID-19 with collaborators at Emory University.
