I am a cancer genetics researcher at UCSF. My work in Allan Balmain's lab centers on using analytical methods to identify genetic networks associated with susceptibility to cancer or which are selectively modified after a tumor develops. We primarily use mouse models of skin and lung cancer. My training is in Computer Science and Biomedical Informatics; I also have worked as a professional software developer.
