I am currently a Postdoctoral Associate in the Department of Computer Science at Virginia Tech, working with T. M. Murali. I develop graph and hypergraph algorithms for signaling pathway prediction.

I received my PhD in 2012 from the Department of Computer Science at Brown University, advised by Ben Raphael. My dissertation focused on developing algorithms for structural variant detection for a number of different experimental applications, including array-CGH and various DNA sequencing technologies. I received my Master's from Brown in 2008 for work in motif identification from phosphoproteomic data. From 2008-2011, I was a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) Fellow.

I received my undergraduate degree from Carleton College in 2006. Advised by Dave Musicant, I worked with chemists to develop useful and scalable tools to analyze atmospheric particles.
