My Focus and Background

Aging is a highly pleiotropic trait that is associated with many seemingly unrelated phenotypes. I am interested in systematically investigating the relationships between age-associated phenotypes in an attempt to uncover the molecular mechanisms, both common and unique, that determine them.

After obtaining my Ph.D. in 2012, I joined the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics at Princeton University as a Principal Investigator and Lewis-Sigler Fellow. At Princeton, I worked primarily on the global analysis of large-scale phenotypic surveys of single and double mutants in the model yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. My long-standing interest is to understand how individual genes interact with one another to carry out fundamental biological functions.
