Anything Else: 

My research interests are at the intersection of genetics and health science. My current research is focused on exploring the genetics of chemosensation, such as taste and smell. I am particularly interested in exploring genetic variability within and between populations, and the effects that genetic variations have in shaping human chemosensory traits. Lastly, I am interested in how these traits may influence health, such as shaping dietary behaviors.
