Summary

ME

I am a Ph.D. student in the Computer Science Department at Brown University where I am lucky to be advised by Ben Raphael. My research centers around designing algorithms for analysis of high-throughput DNA sequencing data of cancer genomes. In particular, I am interested in trying to better understand and model intra-tumor heterogeneity.

 

I received my undergraduate degree in Mathematics from Pomona College in 2005. I worked as a software tester for Epic Systems from 2005-2008, before receiving a certificate in Computer Science from University of Wisconsin - Madison in 2010, and my masters degree in Computer Science from Brown University in 2012. From 2011-2014 I was funded by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship and recieved a Google Anita Borg Scholarship in 2014.
