As a PhD student in Computer Science at Stanford University, I have worked in
computational neuroscience and protein structure simulation. Prior to coming to Stanford, I worked on reconstructing the 3D architecture of folded human genomes in the lab of Erez Lieberman Aiden at Baylor College of Medicine. graduated from Harvard College in 2011 where I majored in mathematics and minored in computer science. You can read more about my current research projects.

I also completed a masters degree in 2014 at New England Conservatory where I studied flute performance with Paula Robison. Check out some past flute performances!
