Assistant Professor of Population and Public Health Sciences

Keck School of Medicine of USC


I am an Assistant Professor of Population and Public Health Sciences in the Division of Biostatistics at the Keck School of Medicine of USC. 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. I also have experience working with data on chromatin structure (ATAC-seq), DNA methylation (WGBS), mass cytometry (CyTOF), and immune repertoire (TCR-seq).
