I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Morgridge Institute for Research where I work in the Regenerative Biology Group and am co-advised by Ron Stewart and Christina Kendziorski. Prior to the Morgridge Institute, I received my bachelor’s in computer science in 2013 from the University of Notre Dame. I then went on to complete my Ph.D. in computer sciences from the University of Wisconsin - Madison, which I received in 2019 and was advised by Colin Dewey.
I work in the areas of computational biology and bioinformatics. Specifically, I research new computational and statistical methods for mining large, heterogeneous biomedical datasets. My goal is to develop new models, databases, and tools that will enable researchers to unleash the untapped knowledge contained within these massive, public genomic datasets in order to address outstanding questions in cell biology, human health, and disease. I use machine learning and statistical techniques extensively in my work.
