About me

I’m currently a bioinformatics and genomics graduate student at the University of Oregon BGMP. Most recently, I worked as a scientific programmer and research assistant in the Ralph and Kern Labs. I graduated with departmental honors in Computer and Information Science at the University of Oregon in the spring of 2018.

Utilizing a backgound in computer science and an interest in biological mechanisms, I have focused on using machine learning and simulation techniques to understand how evolutionary forces influence the variation we see in species’ genomes. More specifically, I’m interested in how we can leverage this understanding of evolution, in conjuction with data science, to infer things about our genome such as recombination rates, genotype-to-phenotype maps, and demographic history through time.

My training in software engineering and design has sparked an interest in building tools for researchers to push the limits of genomics. With computational techiniques moving forward at a rapid pace, I strive to understand how to best apply these techiniques to genetic data.
