Hi, I'm a recent graduate with research interests in molecular evolution and bioinformatics. Thanks to my honours project and undergraduate supervisor, I'm interested in studying the (evolutionary) genomics of marine eukaryotes particularly protists*. In addition to my primary research interests, I'm interested in transposable elements (excluding retrotransposons, just kidding!) and sequencing methods particularly nanopore sequencing. Hoping to study MSc bioinformatics in the future.
*List of publications that developed my interest in protists:
- The Holozoan Capsaspora owczarzaki Possesses a Diverse Complement of Active Transposable Element Families
- Premetazoan genome evolution and the regulation of cell differentiation in the choanoflagellate Salpingoeca rosetta
- The rosetteless gene controls development in the choanoflagellate S. rosetta
Yep, it just took three publications^ jk! Besides science, I'm interested in front-end web development, web-content management, and reviewing web &/or mobile apps. That's all for now. Before you browse this site, you should know that I enjoy creating lists so that's what you will mainly find here.
