I am a recently graduated Master of Science student at the University of Kentucky with a research focus in Machine Learning and its applications to Computational Biology and Drug Discovery. I was advised by Dr. Nathan Jacobs (Computer Science) and Dr. Sally R. Ellingson (Biomedical Informatics).

In the fall of 2018, I will begin my Computer Science Ph.D studies at the University of Colorado, Boulder where I will work with the BioFrontiers Institute as an IQ (Interdisciplinary Quantitative) Biology student.

My work revolves around the goal of using large-scale data and high-performance computing in predictive modeling to improve human health, particularly in the identification of potentially useful drug treatments.
