Curriculum Vitae

Dr. Harris has a bachelor of science in Biology and a bachelor of Arts in Biochemistry from the University of Mississippi where she completed her PhD in Chemistry under the mentorship of Dr. Michael C. Mossing. Her research interests include finding ways to relate genomic and proteomic data, systems biology, and GWAS analysis. She joined SSG in August 2010 as a post-doctoral fellow and will be working on several different projects.
