About Me

I graduated from Harvey Mudd College (HMC) with a B.S. in Mathematical and Computational Biology. I currently attend WPI as a Ph.D student in the Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (BCB) program.

My interests are modeling biological systems, algorithm development, and data mining. I am working with Prof. Elizabeth Ryder and Prof. Robert Gegear on modeling the effects of memory loss on bumblebee population dynamics over time.

You can find my resume here.

Research Projects

GRC Unifying Ecology Across Scales 2018 Poster

I am developing an agent-based model in NetLogo to explore the impact of memory loss at the individual level on long-term population dynamics at different trophic levels.

HHMI Summer 2015 Poster

I developed and implemented algorithms to identify horizontal gene transfer events between bacterial species. Presented at the 2015 HHMI Summer Research Poster Session at HMC.

HHMI Summer 2014 Poster

Study on the hybridization of soft corals using Next-Generation Sequencing (RADseq). I also designed primers to sequence the full mitochondrial genomes of two coral species. Presented at the 2014 HHMI Summer Research Poster Session

HHMI Summer 2013 Poster

Designed and implemented a general non-linear parameter estimation algorithm in C++. Presented at the 2013 HHMI Summer Research Poster Session

Technical Skills

I have programming experience in Python, Java, C++, R, NetLogo, Processing, MATLAB, LabVIEW, and Android Studio. Other technical skills include Adobe InDesign, LaTeX, Github, and Microsoft Word/Excel/Powerpoint.
