Hey there ❗ 👋🏾

I’m currently a 3rd year PhD student in Pathobiology and Translational Science (PBTS) at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill (UNC-CH). My work uses integrative genomic approaches to study environmental and genetic determinants of cancer, leading to health disparities.

This space serves as a compendium of my experience, projects, and all other endeavors.
