Hometown: Boston, MA
Undergraduate institution: The University of Massachusetts Lowell
Undergraduate major: Bioinformatics (Biology), Philosophy
Graduate Study - Institution: Bioinformatics - Harvard University
My research interests are: I'm interested in applying statistical models to problems in immunology specifically cancer immunology. I am also interested in applying machine learning (language models) to the analysis of electronic health records.
Career track: Both Industry and Academia
My career goals are: I would like to work as a group leader at a major research institute or organization.
Other professional accomplishments of note: Fellowships and Awards: Quantitative Biomedical and Data Sciences (QBDS) Research Award E.E. Just Liftoff

I chose QBS because: I was drawn to the faculty and the interdisciplinary aspect to the program. I like that I can explore areas that I am not particularly strong.
