What is your current role? Tell us a bit about your work or line of research
I am a Ph.D. candidate at the laboratory of Dr. Peristera Paschou in the Department of Biological Sciences and a member of the Purdue University Interdisciplinary Life Science Program (PULSe) at Purdue University. I am studying how genetic variation mediated changes in gene expression affects human health such as in neurodevelopmental and auto-immune disorders.
What are you excited about in science communication?
I am excited about various methods of communication that can be employed for public outreach about scientific developments.
Why did you choose to participate in the ASAPbio Fellows program?
As an ASAPbio Fellow, I primarily intend to understand the impact of preprints in scientific communication and promote it to the wider scientific community for adoption. Additionally, I am thrilled to have insightful conversations with peers from various research backgrounds and institutions.
Ask me about..
genetic and environmental impact on human health, neurodevelopmental disorders, cancer, cricket (the sport), and cooking.
