I am broadly interested in using mathematical and computational tools to gain a better understanding of biology and medicine. My background includes analysis of next generation sequencing data in breast cancer cells, study of membrane tension of fission yeast using fluorescent confocal microscopy, and analysis of climate change impact to the biominerals of barnacles. As a member of the Computational Biology Institute, I am currently examining the role of the airway microbiome in the development of asthma, and its relation to asthma severity, in collaboration with other members of CBI and Children’s National.
