I live in Seattle, WA where I’m a research fellow studying bioinformatics, epigenomics and proteomics at the Altius Institute for Biomedical Research with my supervisors John Stamatoyannopoulos and Mike MacCoss. I’m interested in understanding the networks that regulate the human genome using computational models and drug-like compounds to manipulate these networks. Gene regulation is a highly complex and dynamic process, my work draws from several fields including data science, chemical biology, genome engineering and high-throughput genomics / proteomics.
Lately, I’ve been working on small projects to learn machine learning and how they might be useful to study biology. I hope to share some of my experiences with these tools here.
Outside of the lab I try to get into the mountains to climb and run as much as I can. I also volunteer with King County Search and Rescue to help people having a bad day in the mountains.
