Bio

I am a Department Fellow at the Laboratory of Systems Pharmacology and the Department of Systems Biology at Harvard Medical School. Prior to joining Harvard, I completed my Ph.D. in Genetics from Stanford University in the labs of Harley McAdams and Lucy Shapiro. Prior to that still, I worked at Wolfram Research developing computational biology functionality for Mathematica, and founded several startups in the software and mobile space. My research interests lie at the intersection of structural and systems biology. During graduate school, I developed a computational method that synthesizes concepts from compressed sensing and statistical mechanics to predict the quantitative binding affinity of proteins to DNA. My aim is to continue to develop such methods for the quantitative prediction of biomolecular interactions, with the long-term objective of modeling and inferring biological systems as phenomena emergent from molecular interactions.
