I really sucked at it - but I knew that one day I'd have been playing Banjo for 40 years, so I kept practicing.

Research Interests

I am interested in using long-read sequencing to increase the rate of genetic diagnosis, shorten the time required to make a genetic diagnosis, and identify novel biological processes for further study in the laboratory.
