I am an undergraduate student studying computer science and physics who is interested in using these two fields to better understand our immune system. I leverage multi-omics single cell datasets from patients with immune-mediated diseases to increase our understanding of pathogenesis in these diseases. Since these datasets are heavily influenced by biases and patient heterogeneity, I am also developing computational methods for analyzing these datasets more robustly. After college, I hope to pursue a PhD in computational biology and continue using computational tools to help treat immune-mediated diseases.
