Research Interests

  • My research uses a multi-disciplinary approach to investigate oncogenic mechanisms of human cancers. By integrating expertise in functional genomics with experimental biology, the goal of my research is to investigate tumor heterogeneity to identify and validate novel drivers of cancer genesis, regulators of oncogenic pathway activity, and to identify genetic interactions to develop novel therapeutic strategies.
