Biography

I am a postdoctoral researcher with Professor Rafael Irizarry in the Department of Data Sciences at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. I earned my PhD in Biostatistics with a Designated Emphasis in Computational Biology from the University of California, Berkeley under the supervision of Professor Sandrine Dudoit.

My research interests include the development and evaluation of computational methods for high-dimensional genomic data. Much of my work has focused on applications in single-cell RNA sequencing, particularly for the analysis of continuous differentiation trajectories. I am also interested in multi-omics integration, the problem of combining and leveraging information from disparate genomic assays in the same experiment.
