- Information Science and Technology, School of Interdisciplinary Informatics, Associate Professor
My primary goal as a teacher is to enable students to discover new possibilities and develop skills that open new doors of opportunity. My research is highly interdisciplinary and lies at the intersection between computational and biological sciences with an emphasis on integrating and analyzing large biomedical data sets. I believe, while research provides an opportunity to change the world, teaching and mentoring provide opportunities to make lasting impacts on individuals.
