I am a PhD candidate in the Bioinformatics and Integrative Genomics program at Harvard Medical School, and an NSF Graduate Research Fellow. I received my BS in Mathematical and Computational Science from Stanford University (2019), where I developed computational methods to study the mechanisms of antimicrobial resistance and susceptibility with Dr. Ami Bhatt and Dr. Samuel Yang. At Harvard Medical School, I am excited to continue designing novel machine learning methods to expedite future diagnostic and therapeutic endeavors with Dr. Marinka Zitnik and close academic and industry collaborators (including Dr. Isaac Kohane).
Inspired by my mentors and teachers from educational non-profit organizations, namely the TEAK Fellowship and S-PREP at Columbia University, I dedicate much of my time to mentoring and teaching students who are underrepresented in STEM and/or from under-resourced communities. At Stanford, I mentored and taught workshops to high school girls in the Bay Area through Girls Teaching Girls To Code. Currently, I am a graduate student mentor for Harvard College's WiSTEM Mentorship Program; a core member of the MITxHarvard Women in Artificial Intelligence; and a founding co-chair and mentor for the Young Women in Stem: Mentoring Program in India. Beyond Harvard, I founded and teach for the computer science program at Alexander Twilight Academy.
