Masters Student in Statistics, admitted Autumn 2022
Project Assistant, Woods Support for Steve Luby
BioI am currently pursuing a Master of Science (M.S.) in Data Science at Stanford University (with coursework in Statistics, Computer Science, and Computational and Mathematical Engineering). Before Stanford, I graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Statistics from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). I am always eager to contribute to research and gain more experience through data science internships. My technical prowess, determined work ethic (I completed my four-year undergraduate degree at UCLA in three years), and effective communication skills make me a valuable addition to any team.
Next summer (2023), I will join Apple as a Data Science Intern. Currently, I am a research assistant within the Luby Lab at Stanford, working on processing, standardizing, and visualizing data regarding brick kiln production in South Asia. Last year, I interned with Bridg as a Data Science Intern, working on data querying, data transformations, natural language processing (NLP), and machine learning with Python and SQL--with integrations in Snowflake (and Snowpark, Snowflake's Python API)--on terabytes of data (over 100 billion observations). My projects improved insights from product descriptions and standardized features across multiple sources.
My experiences have prepared me to work in virtually any domain. I am always willing to discuss potential work opportunities or my path with prospective undergraduate or graduate students or data science enthusiasts via LinkedIn or email.

Current Research and Scholarly InterestsOur laboratory aims to develop and test innovative approaches to the diagnosis, treatment and control of infectious diseases in resource-limited settings. We draw upon multiple fields including mathematical modeling, microbial genetics, field epidemiology, statistical inference and biodesign to work on challenging problems in infectious diseases, with an emphasis on tuberculosis and tropical diseases.
Assistant Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, by courtesy, of Pediatrics (Endocrinology), of Bioengineering and Center Fellow, by courtesy, at the Woods Institute for the Environment
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe underlying theme of the Appel Lab at Stanford University integrates concepts and approaches from supramolecular chemistry, natural/synthetic materials, and biology. We aim to develop supramolecular biomaterials that exploit a diverse design toolbox and take advantage of the beautiful synergism between physical properties, aesthetics, and low energy consumption typical of natural systems. Our vision is to use these materials to solve fundamental biological questions and to engineer advanced healthcare solutions.
