I am an MD/PhD student working in the Bintu lab, building theoretical and experimental tools to harness chromatin-mediated gene regulation for better mammalian cell engineering. I am supported by the Tusher Family Stanford Interdisciplinary Graduate Fellowship, Bio-X. My interests include mammalian synthetic biology, transgender healthcare and liberation, and data science/visualization.
Before coming to Stanford, I studied Computer Science with a minor in Mathematics at Duke University. At Duke, I worked on building efficient and provably correct algorithms for computational structure-based protein design in the lab of Bruce Donald.
