I am a Lane Fellow at the Computational Biology Department in School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University, working with Professor Ziv Bar-Joseph. Previously, I was a research fellow in the Daifeng Wang Laboratory at the Waisman Center, University of Wisconsin-Madison. I earned my PhD in Computer Science from Stony Brook University .

My current research interest lies in machine learning on graphs and manifolds, and their applications for understanding molecular mechanisms and improving genotype-phenotype predictions in complex biological systems. Additionally, I am interested in the ethical, epistemological, and societal aspects of AI/ML, such as machine learning fairness, explainability in AI, data-driven scientific discoveries, and AI for social good.


On a personal note, I am an avid readear with a strong interest in philosophy and literature. I am also an amateur photographer.
