Overview

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biostatistics and Computational Biology at the University of Rochester Medical Center. I have a secondary appointment in the Department of Biomedical Genetics and am affiliated with the Institute for Data Science and the Center for Biomedical Informatics. 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).
