About Me

I am a final year Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Virginia. I work at the intersection of machine learning and biology with Dr. Yanjun Qi as my advisor. From 2012 to 2015, I collaborated extensively Dr. Mazhar Adli‘s lab in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics to understand biological datasets and related tasks. This summer (2017), I interned with Dr. Jennifer Listgarten at Microsoft Research New England. My research involves developing efficient algorithms for analysis of sequential data as well as applying deep learning models to novel biological applications.
