Avanti Shrikumar

I'm a fourth-year PhD candidate in the Department of Computer Science at Stanford, advised by Professor Anshul Kundaje. I develop broadly-applicable methods to make deep learning models interpretable, and have applied these methods to study regulatory genomics. In order of my excitement, my PhD projects are: TF-MoDISco, DeepLIFT, Selective Classification via Curve Optimization, Separable Fully-Connected Layers, Reverse-Complement Parameter Sharing and simDNA.

I have a Bachelor's in Computer Science with Molecular Biology from MIT and spent a year working as a developer for the Healthcare team of Palantir Technologies before starting my PhD.
