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.


My Publications can be found on my Google Scholar page.

2016 – A busy year for Gene Wiki and WikiData

I knew it! Last year, I struggled with the year-end post for the Gene Wiki/WikiData (AKA the Gene WikiData) project because the Gene WikiData team was incredibly active. I learned my lesson, and attempted to better track their activity earlier this year with a running tally. Still, the Gene WikiData team was so productive, I still had trouble keeping up with everything they did! They’ve...
