Mechanism and Significance of Off-Target Effects in CRISPR-Cas9 This was my final paper for Honors 242 (Controversies in Scientific Discovery) with Professor Anna Mapp in 2017. CRISPR technology has moved very quickly since I wrote this paper: in particular, that there are several new strategies to ameliorate off-target effects (e.g. high-fidelity Cas9, nickases). Still, it is an interesting exposition of several potential pitfalls in gene editing.
I tutor students in mathematics, both individually and through outreach programs, including Math Circle and Math Mondays in Ypsi.
