Current work and interests
Raina is a PhD student supervised by Professor Ken Ong and Dr John Perry. She is interested in understanding the roles of protein-coding variants in complex human traits, especially those occurring at a rare frequency in the population. Her research leverages large-scale sequencing data and bioinformatics tools.
Background and experience
Before joining the unit, Raina completed her MPhil in Genetics at the University of Cambridge, where she conducted research on specifying the haplotype diversity of Dengue viruses in infected patients using the next-generation sequencing data. Previously, she completed a BSc in Biomedical Sciences at University College London and worked in the field of pharmaceutical market access.
