Graduate Student

As a PhD candidate in the Tatonetti Lab, my research focuses on utilizing and understanding biological networks, especially in the contexts of drug-drug interactions (DDIs) and human disease. Part of my research pertains to the development of methods that allow for the direct comparison of biological networks between species, which have allowed me to create inter-species models of biological processes.

This is my second time studying at Columbia University; I graduated from Columbia College in 2011 with a BA and a double major in biology and English literature.
