About Me

I am an applied statistician with expertise in the statistical modeling and analysis of genomics, single-cell transcriptomics, and CRISPR genome editing data. Currently, I am bioinformatics scientist at the Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETH Zurich). Previously, I was a post-doctoral researcher in computational biology working with Dr. Najafabadi in the Department of Human Genetics, McGill University/Génome Québec Innovation Centre and before moving to Canada, I was a research fellow in the lab of Dr. Pinello at the Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School. I received a PhD in Quantitative Psychology (statistics applied to modeling psychological and neuroimaging data), a masters degree in Mathematical Statistics, and a masters degree in Psychometrics from the Ohio State University. This website contains blogposts, code, and links to several resources that I hope you might find useful.
