About

I’m a computational biologist at Verily Life Sciences in Cambridge, MA. Previously I was a graduate student at MIT, where I was a member of the Gifford lab.

I did my undergraduate work at Duke, where I obtained degrees in computer science and mathematics and was fortunate to work with Alex Hartemink.  I spent a semester taking classes in Italian at the Università di Bologna.  Before graduate school, I spent a bit over a year working on software and algorithms for Ion Torrent (which became Life Technologies, then Thermo Fisher).  As an undergraduate, I did internships at Microsoft and Google. I also twice participated in the ACM ICPC World Finals and the Mathematical Contest in Modeling (MCM), obtaining an “Outstanding” rating once.

You can see what courses I’ve taken here.

My public Github page is here.  I’m also on LinkedIn and Biostars.

I’ll put more details here in the future, but for now, here’s a CV sketch:
