I am a research scientist with Dr. Robert Grossman in the Institute for Genomics and Systems Biology at the University of Chicago. I completed my PhD in Computer Science at Rice University with Dr. Lydia Kavraki, where I developed algorithms for computational problems in structural and systems biology. My current research interests are in cloud computing systems and algorithms tailored for data intensive science. My projects revolve around the design and implementation of computational methods for analyzing large genomic datasets. I also work on creating utilities for managing large data sets in cloud computing environments.
