Bio

I am a first-year PhD student in the Department of Genetics at Stanford.

Before graduate school, I worked on a range of problems in biotechnology. I have helped design cancer vaccines, built computational tools for advancing imaging technologies, and worked as a software engineer on a modern genome browser. While these experiences are quite different, my North Star has been to work on cutting-edge technology problems in genomics with the potential for high impact.

I also write a weekly newsletter called The Century of Biology, which you can find more information about here.
