Rotation student

I am a first-year Ph.D. student in the BMB Department and currently doing a Lab rotation in Prof. Guy Nir’s lab. As a part of the current rotation, I compare the structural and transcriptional states of cancer-causing chromosomes in healthy and diseased B-lymphocytes.

Before joining UTMB, I completed an MS degree in Analytical Chemistry and worked as an Analyst in TestAmerica (Chicago), where I was responsible for testing Environmental samples. I also have work experience in a clinical laboratory focusing on Maryland’s drug screening and genetic testing. My goal in pursuing a Ph.D. at UTMB is to develop my skillset in molecular biology techniques, drug discovery, and computational biology to become a scientist in the pharmaceutical industry. In my free time, I love to travel with my wife, explore new places, try different food, and enjoy the local culture. Also, I’m interested in Hiking and listening to music.
