I'm a Postdoctoral Associate in the Computational Biology group at MIT, under the direction of Professor Manolis Kellis. I'm currently interested in identifying genetic mutations that are associated with disease risk, and identifying regulatory pathways and networks that are disrupted by these mutations. We are currently focused on multiple sclerosis and type 1 diabetes.
Previously, I did my PhD in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Toronto, under the direction of Professor Quaid Morris. My PhD focused on constructing probabilistic models for separating gene expression profiles of heterogeneous tumor samples into the profiles of the constituent cancer and normal cells, as well as the application of these profiles to predicting cancer patient risk of death.
