I'm a computational biologist focussed on analysis, modeling, and simulation of B-cell repertoire dynamics in response to infection and vaccination.
Before joining the Hutch, I worked with Brenton Graveley's RNA biology / alternative-splicing lab at UConn Health Ctr,
contributing to the modENCODE and
I received my PhD in computer science from UMass Amherst,
specializing in Reinforcement Learning theory and optimal adaptive control
(Andy Barto, PI) and
held postdoctoral fellowships at the Gatsby Computational Neuroscience
Unit, University College London and the Institute for Genomics and
Bioinformatics, UC Irvine.
