I'm a PhD Candidate in Computer Science at the University of Maryland, advised by Niklas Elmqvist, and supported by a fellowship from the National Institutes of Health, where I work with the Genome Informatics Section. My research interests include Natural Language Processing, Computational Biology, and Information Visualization.
I have worked on highly cited publications, given talks at top-tier conferences, acted as a peer reviewer for journals like Nature and Bioinformatics, served as a Data Science Mentor at the NIH, and guest lectured at UMD.
Outside of research, I direct the Nerds in Harmony, a long-running a cappella group made up of NIH employees and fellows. I'm also a Yoga Alliance RYT® 200 Registered Yoga Teacher, and enjoy teaching for UMD RecWell on campus and online.
