I am a computational biologist with expertise in integrating diverse data types from clinical and environmental sources. I currently work as a PhD student with Eric Alm at MIT, studying how interactions between bacteria in our guts and our immune systems generate disease. Specifically, I focus on the effects of fecal transplants—transferring stool from a healthy donor into a sick recipient—in patients with inflammatory bowel disease.
More broadly, I get excited about projects that bring technologies from genomic science to the people and systems they might benefit, particularly in underserved areas of health and sustainability.
