I graduated from Trinity College Dublin in 2019 with a B.A. in Human Genetics. My final year project leveraged existing datasets to examine the regulation of motor neuron identity and its migration in Drosophila Melanogaster. I recently completed an MSc in Biomedical Genomics in the National University of Ireland, Galway, where my project examined factors influencing expression patterns of duplicate genes. I’m interested and excited by the possibility of developing new genomic tools which would allow a re-analysis of existing data.
