About Me

 
Love science and research? I do! I’m an extremely enthusiastic researcher with a Ph.D. from the Cell and Molecular Biology program offered jointly from SDSU and UCSD. My dissertation research was on viral persistence in the stem cells of the central nervous system. I enjoy engaging in cross-functional, multi-disciplinary, collaborative team endeavors. I am meticulous in organizing and documenting my research findings and have created customized databases for improved knowledge management. I also enjoy coding/programming and building computers on the side, and have created/managed web sites and databases for academic life science laboratories. I hope to help facilitate the Su Lab’s collaborative efforts.

MedLit Blitz, Mark2Curathon Results and More

Mark2Curathon Results Sorry for the delay, the Mark2Curathon results are finally in! During the Mark2Cure portion of MedLit Blitz, we had 34 participants contribute over 16,000 annotations. Because both the entity recognition and the relationship extraction tasks are very different from Cochrane's screening task, we had to take some additional considerations when tallying the results. For the...
