I graduated from MIT in 2015 with a degree in Biological Engineering, and focused my energies in molecular biology at the Sharp Lab at MIT and systems biology research at the Weissleder Lab at Harvard-MGH. As a Biology graduate student at Caltech, I discovered a passion for computation, and delved into computer science coursework and fun rotations. After obtaining a Masters, I spent a summer as a bioinformatics engineer at the Yamanaka Lab at UCSF Gladstone Institutes, which I loved! Now at Princeton, I hope to integrate my diverse experiences in developing deep learning algorithms to elucidate disease mechanisms at the molecular level.
