I’m a research fellow at Massachusetts General Hospital and the Broad Institute, advised by Daniel MacArthur. I graduated with a PhD from the Biomedical Informatics training program at Stanford University, advised by Mike Snyder and co-advised by Stephen Montgomery, and my undergraduate was in Molecular Biology from Princeton University, specializing in Quantitative and Computational Biology (advisor: Amy Caudy). I am the co-author of Exploring Personal Genomics, the first inquiry-based guide to understanding and interpreting a personal genome, available from Amazon.

You can find my CV here.
