I obtained my PhD in Computational biology from the Johns Hopkins University, School of Medicine. During my PhD at the Cahan Lab, I have developed SingleCellNet , a computational tool to classify single cell RNA seq data across platform and across species.

Currently, I am a postdoctoral fellow in Dr. Garry Nolan's lab at Stanford exploring multi-omics integration and 3D tissue imaging.

Here is my CV.
