I am a PhD student in EECS, advised by Professor Nilah Ioannidis. I study how machine learning methods can be applied to further our understanding of regulatory genomics. I grew up in the Bay Area and completed my undergraduate and master’s degrees in computer science at MIT. Before my PhD, I worked as a software engineer at a biotech company focused on early cancer detection in a clinical setting. As a graduate student, I am more interested in applying computational methods towards basic scientific understanding.
