Old city gates in Xi'an

I am a research scientist at Deep Genomics working on computational biology and statistical genetics. My research interests are, broadly, identifying casual genetic associations with complex disease, using machine learning to understand functional genomics, and designing statistical inference methods for population genetics.

Previously I completed my DPhil thesis in Genomic Medicine and Statistics at the University of Oxford under the supervision of Gerton Lunter and Thomas Milne. There I used and developed machine learning methods to understand transcriptional regulation in MLL recombinant leukemia and helped develop a particle filter for demographic inference. Check out my recent publications for more information on those and my previous projects. I love to code, both for work and for hobbies, and a semi-complete list of previous publicly available projects is also found on this page.

Outside of work, I love to hike with my dog and be in nature, ideally while holding a nice cup of coffee. I love to cook and bake, and try to run as much as I can. I’m also learning Mandarin Chinese.

我慢慢学中文在牛津语言中心。 我的女朋友是中国人,我们去了北京。
