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. I also run on McGill's cross country and track teams 🙃.
