I am a Master’s student in the Biomedical Informatics program, offered through the School of Computing and Dept of Biomedical and Molecular Sciences at Queen’s University. I obtained my Bachelor of Science, majoring in Biochemistry, from Queen’s University in 2018.
My study involves testing the hypothesis that both genetic and environmental factors contribute to risk of developing allergies by determining both the main and interaction effects of genes and environmental exposures. Specifically, by conducting genome-wide association studies (GWAS) of atopic outcomes among infants in the Canadian Healthy Infant Longitudinal Development (CHILD) Study, as well as examining the interaction effects of environmental exposures on the prevalence of these outcomes.
