I received my B.A. in Mathematics in 2004 and M.S. in Biology in 2007 from New York University in New York, NY. I am interested in the regulation of chromatin domains in germinal center B cells and how these domains are deregulated in diffuse large B cell lymphoma. I am currently pursuing this interest from two angles: examining how chromatin remodeling complexes are regulated to establish and maintain large-scale gene expression programs and investigating the relationship between chromatin domains and 3-D structure of the genome. I entered the Physiology, Biophysics, and Systems Biology program at Weill Cornell Graduate School of Medical Sciences in 2010, where I now participate in the laboratories of my co-advisors Ari Melnick and Olivier Elemento. To study chromatin domain dynamics, my research combines high throughput biological assays (e.g. chromatin immunoprecipitation sequencing, RNA profiling, chromatin conformation capture) with computational approaches using human primary samples, cell lines, and mouse models.
