Ph.D. Project

Characterization and Discovery of Small RNAs in Metazoa

Research Interests

I am genomic scientist interested in understanding the mechanisms underlying the wide phenotypic diversity in animals, in particular the role non-coding RNAs play in the evolution of gene regulatory landscapes within and across living organisms.

Expertise: Analysis of high-throughput (next generation) sequencing data, transcriptomics, genome annotation, non-coding RNAs
