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

Marioni Group, Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute, University of Cambridge

Specialism: Cancer Cell Evolution

During her PhD at UBC in Vancouver, Canada, Adi established herself as a promising cancer researcher. She made contributions to understanding of breast cancer evolution and methods for single-cell whole genome sequencing. Adi is now working with Prof John Marioni in Cambridge, UK and is using her placement as a Schmidt Science Fellow to develop her skills in probabilistic modeling and machine learning.

Adi plans to bring her experience in cancer research and advances in computational approaches together to generate new insights into single-cell biology during normal development and early carcinogenesis.
