Tonya graduated with her BA from the University of Colorado in molecular cell and developmental biology.  She attended the University of New Mexico for gradate school and obtained her PhD in genetics and developmental biology and simultaneously obtained a MS in computer science.  Her current research project is in collaboration with the Chicago Pancreatic Cancer Initiative (CPCI) and involves the genetic analysis of somatic mutations in patients diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and its relationship to clinical outcome and survival.  Tonya's second research project is in collaboration with the PsychENCODE consortium to analyze RNA-seq data and ATAC-seq data from post-mortem brain tissue across various psychiatric disorders.
