  • I was seleted with honorable mention to be a part of the School of Engineering’s Future Faculty Fellows Program, at Rice University (Houston, TX). The goal of the program is to help fellows to become more competitive for faculty positions, by providing support in preparing all elements of the faculty application and interview.
  • I was selected to be a Postdoctoral Fellow of the Computational Cancer Biology Training Program (CCBTP). This fellowship is funded by the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT), grant number RP170593. The CCBTP is one of the training programs of the Gulf Coast Consortia for Quantitative Biomedical Sciences (GCC).
