Old city gates in Xi'an
I’m interested in studying functional genomics using machine learning, as well as learning about ancient history from DNA. Check out my recent publications for more information.
I’m a student in the DPhil Genomic Medicine and Statistics program at the University of Oxford, jointly funded by the Wellcome Trust and the Clarendon Fund. I work at the Wellcome Centre for Human Genetics and Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine (WIMM) with my supervisors Gerton Lunter, Thomas Milne, and Jim Hughes. I graduated with an Honours BSc in Biomedical Science specializing in Biostatistics from the University of Ottawa in 2017.
Outside of work, I am an avid hiker, coffee enthusiast, and home baker (though the last is a work in progress).
