Research Focus

My research at Calico is focused on identifying and validating novel therapeutic targets and strategies for the treatment of cancer. A primary driver of our group’s work is the computational mining of large-scale functional genomics and phenotypic small-molecule screens to identify selective vulnerabilities in definable cancer subtypes.

Prior to joining Calico, I completed my Postdoc in Kevin Shannon's laboratory at University of California San Francisco (UCSF) where I worked on novel strategies for targeting NRAS mutant hematological malignancies.
