Hello! I am a computer science Ph.D. student at the University of California, Berkeley. Although my primary interest is in software engineering, I enjoy building software that can be applied in other disciplines, which is why I spend a lot of my time working with biologists. I guess you can say I've become something of a Computational Biologist over the years. In fact, I would even go so far as to say I have a Designatied Emphasis in Computational Biology. I am working with Lior Pachter and I am a member of the UC Berkeley Laboratory for Mathematical and Computational Biology. My work is supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.
Aside from all of my research and classes, I spend a lot of time with my amazing yoga-instructor wife Ashley and cross-eyed dog Sagan.
I also often visit my former students and colleagues at Life Academy of Health and Biosciences -- a small public high school in Oakland where I taught math for two
years with Teach For America and continue to teach a post-session class on Fractals and Photography with Steve Miller.
I am somewhat obsessed with music and have attended hundreds of live shows. Check out my brother's band HYMNS if you're looking for some good tunes.
I was also once an aspiring filmmaker (videos to come).
