Old city gates in Xi'an
I’m a student in the DPhil Genomic Medicine and Statistics program at the University of Oxford, jointly funded by the Wellcome Trust and the Clarendon Fund. I graduated with an Honours BSc in Biomedical Science specializing in Biostatistics from the Univeristy of Ottawa in 2017.
Currently I am working with Prof Gerton Lunter and Prof Mark McCarthy to understand how genetic variation in the human microbiome may influence our risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes. I also study history through the lens of genetics, and am working to understand ancient human population movement using ancient DNA and machine learning.
Outside of work, I’m an avid hiker, coffee enthusiast, and home baker, though the last is a work in progress.
