Assistant Professor in the Department of Biostatistics and Computational Biology with a joint appointment in the Department of Biomedical Genetics at the University of Rochester Medical Center. My research interests are in statistical genomics, systems biology, and bioinformatics. I am currently developing methods to estimate gene regulatory networks from gene perturbation experiments, to address within-subject heterogeneity in genomic tumor biomarkers, to preprocess and analyze genomic data, and to examine the effect of cellular composition on tissue-level gene expression.
I received a Ph.D. in Biostatistics from The Johns Hopkins University under the supervision of Rafael Irizarry. My thesis work focused on developing statistical methodology for preprocessing and analysis of data from a single microarray. I was also part of the Biostatistics intramural soccer team that won the league championship. An overview of my time there can be found here.
From 2010-2014, as a postdoc working with Anthony Almudevar and Hartmut Land, my research focused on incorporating uncertainty in the estimation of gene regulatory networks from perturbation experiments. This work resulted in a K99/R00 grant from the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI).
