Assistant Professor of Biology, University of Massachusetts Boston
I am interested in the mechanisms of transcriptional and translational gene regulation in the cell. In addition, I study how those mechanisms go awry in gene regulatory diseases such as like cancer. In particular, my work focuses on biophysical sequence-to-affinity models of protein-DNA and protein-RNA interactions using high-throughput microarray and sequencing data. Also, I use these affinity models in a Systems Biology approach to find TF-markers of cancer phenotypes.
Since 2013, I am an Assistant Professor of Biology at the University of Massachusetts Boston.
