My main interest is in computational biology, especially the applications of machine learning to biological problems.
Currently I am working on using convolutional neural networks to identify sequence motifs that affect alternative splicing.
I am advised by Prof. Georg Seelig.

I attended Brown University from 2011-2015, graduating with an Sc.B in Math and Computer Science. There, I worked with Prof. Nicola Neretti on quantifying repetitive elements in cells and tools for reconstructing 3D chromosome structure.
