Postdoctoral Scholar, Biomedical Data Sciences
BioI’m a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Department of Biomedical Data Sciences at Stanford University. I’m currently an Associate Member of the Human Pan Reference Genome Project and the coordinator for the HLA working group of the Clinical Genome Resource. Previously, I was at the University of Michigan, where I did my PhD in Anthropology.
My primary research interests are to investigate how natural selection shapes human populations–particularly how infectious disease shapes the genome. By incorporating an evolutionary framework, we can better understand modern health and disease. I am working on detecting regions of the genome that have undergone selection in Mesoamerican populations, and expanding that work to medical relevance today. I am currently working on various HLA related projects, Dengue, and on COVID-19.

Current Research and Scholarly InterestsComputational systems biology of human disease. Particular focus on integration of high-throughput datasets with each other, and with phenotypic information and clinical outcomes.
Associate Professor of Medicine (Biomedical Informatics) and of Biomedical Data Science
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy lab focuses on biomedical data fusion: the development of machine learning methods for biomedical decision support using multi-scale biomedical data. We primarily use methods based on regularized linear regression to accomplish this. We primarily focus on applications in oncology and neuroscience.
