ML + Stat Gen

Update: I will be a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics (ICERM) at Brown University starting September 2019, and will be attending the semester program in model and dimension reduction in uncertain and dynamic systems.

I study machine learning and statistical genetics in the Quantitative and Computational Biology Ph.D program at Princeton University, where I am advised by Barbara Engelhardt (Princeton) and co-advised by Sayan Mukherjee (Duke). I have worked in research labs at Microsoft Research New England (with Jennifer Listgarten and Nicolo Fusi), Rockefeller University (with Robert Darnell and Chaolin Zhang), and Harvard School of Public Health (with Alkes Price). At UCLA, my research mentor was Eleazar Eskin.
