Hi! I'm a PhD student at McGill University and Mila AI Institute.
Currently, I am studying how machine learning can be applied to biological and medical problems, specifically the integration of large and diverse multi-omic single-cell datasets.
This research will directly contribute to our understanding of the subtle molecular mechanisms underlying neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.
I am supervised by Dr. Danilo Bzdok, a Canada CIFAR AI Chair.
Prior to McGill I completed an Honours BSc in statistics and biochemistry at the University of Toronto, where I was fortunate to receive both a Schulich Leader Scholarship and a BMO National Scholarship.
Before that I grew up in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia.
In my free time I enjoy reading books on American political history, innovation, and sometimes philosophy (see my reading list below).
Sometimes I also enjoy running as fast as I can through the mud or in circles (I run on McGill's cross country and track teams 🙃).
