AboutHey! My name is Ruo and my Polygence project is on the Application of Epigenetics in relation to Criminal Justice and Social Science. I wanted to work on this project because I believe it helps brings us closer to the age-old question of nature versus nurture⏤ whether our behavior is a result of our genetic background or our upbringing. This, in turn, can inform us when we build preventive programs for juveniles and other at-risk youth. After my project is complete, I would like to continue my studies and my research in a university.
