Unlike solid tumors, leukemia can not be removed by surgery. Therefore, understanding how leukemia initiate and progress on the molecular level is particularly important for developing treatments. I study Myeloproliferative Neoplasms (MPNs), which is a type of blood malignancy caused by overproliferation of blood cells. For my thesis work, I compared the gene expression profiles of MPN patients to healthy controls, identified several genes that are misregulated in patients, and studied their contribution to the development of MPNs. In the past five years, I worked with human and mouse bone marrow samples, performed bone marrow transplantation on mice, and acquired a wide range of bench research skills in molecular and cell biology.


I majored in molecular biology at Purdue University, and graduated with honors in 2006. Besides research, I like drawing, yoga, art, and exploring Chicago. Please msg/email me if you have any questions about the lab or the lab website.
