Hello! I'm a postdoc in the MIT Computational Biology Lab (PI: Prof. Manolis Kellis) at MIT CSAIL and the Broad Institute. My research is currently supported by the Alana Down Syndrome Center at MIT, supporting our aims of using contextualized machine learning to understand complex diseases. I completed my PhD at the CS Department at CMU, advised by Prof. Eric Xing.
