I'm currently a postdoc in the Department of Earth System Science at Stanford, where I work with Professor Karen Casciotti to build computational models of oceanic nutrient cycling. I was previously a senior PhD candidate in the Department of Computer Science at Stanford, advised by Professor Anshul Kundaje. During my PhD, I developed methods to make deep learning models interpretable, and applied these methods to study regulatory genomics. In order of my excitement, my PhD projects were:

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.
