BackgroundB.S. in Biomedical Engineering, Minor in Engineering Business, University of Virginia.
I am currently a graduate student in the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Utah. I am working with Dr. Orly Alter to analyze large-scale genomic data sets using generalizations of the singular value decomposition. The goal of this research is to gain insight into the genomics of various cancers, including glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) and ovarian cancer. In the long term, we hope to enable clinicians to use genomic data as an effective prognostic indicator and a guide for effective therapy.
