I am a Bioinformatics Fellow in Dr. Katie Pollard's lab at the Gladstone Institutes at UCSF. The focus of my research is investigating the regulatory effects of noncoding variants in neurological development and diseases.
Prior to that I was a PhD student and NSF Graduate Research Fellow in Dr. Mona Singh's lab in the Department of Computer Science at Princeton University based in the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics. My research there focused on the use of algorithms and networks for cancer genomics. Before that I was an I.I. Rabi Science Scholar as an undergraduate student at Columbia University.
Guest Lecturer for BMI 206 Statistical Methods for Bioinformatics at UCSF (2020)
Instructor for MAT033 Pre-Algebra, MAT037 Beginning Algebra, and MAT135 Intermediate/College Algebra at the Princeton Prison Teaching Initiative (2013-2015)
I have been an active participant of HackPrinceton. Two of the projects I worked on were "What Would I Say" which has had millions of users (read about it in The New Yorker) and "Bad Luck or Just Suck" which has had tens of thousands of users.
I also enjoy projecting bouldering problems.
