I am a Data Science Ph.D. Candidate pursuing research in Prof. Dmitry Korkin’s group and I develop computational methods for biological discovery.

My primary research interests are in developing artificial intelligence to identify novel patterns in next generation sequencing data, psychometric and neuroimaging data; structural bioinformatics and computational epidemiology. Additional research interests include machine learning methods to uncover communities in biological networks and detect anomalies in time-series data.

I was a teaching assistant in the Computer Science department and have taught courses in artificial intelligence, distributed computing systems, object-oriented design and computer graphics. I am also a research mentor for graduate and undergraduate students, and high school outreach programs.
