I am an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Data Science, Computer Science (courtesy) and Electrical Engineering (courtesy) at Stanford University. I work on a wide range of problems in machine learning (from proving mathematical properties to designing new probabilistic models) and am especially interested in applications in human genomics. I received my Ph.D. from Harvard University in May 2014 and was fortunate to be a member of Microsoft Research New England. Before this, I completed Part III in Mathematics at the University of Cambridge and was a Simons fellow at U.C. Berkeley. I joined Stanford in Fall 2016 and am excited to be an inaugural Chan-Zuckerberg Investigator.
