Adi Steif

PhD Institution: University of British Columbia Class: 2018 Fellow Postdoctoral instution and lab:

University of Cambridge

Specialism: Cancer Cell Evolution

Dr Steif completed her PhD with Professor Sohrab Shah at the University of British Columbia working on the evolution of cancer tumor cells at the single-cell whole-genome DNA sequence level. Dr Steif now plans to further develop her skills in machine learning and mathematics to better understand the mutational signatures caused by human behaviors such as smoking, drinking, and UV exposure. Specifically, she will look at unknown cancer-causing factors in a large-scale genomics database of pancreatic, kidney, osophageal, and bowel cancers patients where the habits, lifestyles, and environmental conditions for the patients are known.
