I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Computer Science at Duke University. My advisor is Professor Alexander Hartemink.
The focus of my research is on the development of computational models and application of machine learning algorithms to solve interesting problems in computational genomics. I am currently working on a modular epigenomic pipeline for prediction of imprinted genes in the human genome. I am also interested in using computational epigenomics in the investigation of other biological problems.
While I enjoy doing research, I also like interacting with students in various teaching capacities. I am looking forward to taking on some additional responsibilities as a TA again for CPS 160: Introduction to Computational Genomics, an undergraduate CS course taught by Professor Alex Hartemink. I teach an eStudies course on Java programming at Duke University's Talent Identification Program for gifted high school students. I also enjoy working with Professor Susan Rodger and being involved with her Alice outreach programs.
