TITLE: Undergraduate Student
MAJOR: Computational and Systems Biology, concentration in Data Science
MINOR: Mathematics


My work focuses around bioinformatics and data analysis for the lab. My current research develops single cell RNA sequencing methods for reconstructing heterogeneous time course trajectories from snapshot time series data. I have previously worked on analyzing ChIP-seq and RNA-seq data, along with performing DNA motif-oriented analysis to investigate DNA-binding mechanisms of RelA. In the UCLA BIG Summer program, I used genomic landscapes in small cell lung cancer cell lines to predict drug sensitivities. Outside the lab, some of my interests include playing the piano and guitar, engaging in community service projects for science education and mentorship, playing and watching sports, trying new cuisines, and analyzing sports data.
