I am a second year PhD student in Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington working with Professor Su-In Lee. My research interests are in Computational Biology and Machine Learning (but they don't just stop there, as you'll see if you look around the rest of my website). Originally from Tampa, FL, I graduated from MIT with a degree in Biological Engineering. Having fully explored two corners of our great country, I figured I'd give a third a try! When I'm not working you can typically find at sporting events, exploring different cuisines across Seattle or just relaxing at home in the U-district where I live with seven other CSE grad students.
