I’m a computational biologist at Verily Life Sciences in Cambridge, MA. Previously I was a graduate student at MIT, where I was a member of the Gifford lab.

I did my undergraduate work at Duke, where I obtained degrees in computer science and mathematics and was fortunate to work with Alex Hartemink. I spent a semester taking classes in Italian at the Università di Bologna. Before graduate school, I spent a bit over a year working on software and algorithms for Ion Torrent (which became Life Technologies, then Thermo Fisher). As an undergraduate, I did internships at Microsoft and Google. I also twice participated in the ACM ICPC World Finals and the Mathematical Contest in Modeling (MCM), obtaining an “Outstanding” rating once.
