I am a Senior Researcher at
Microsoft Research New England
located in Cambridge, MA on the Charles, a five minute walk from MIT . Previously I was with Microsoft Research
in Los Angeles and before that in Redmond, WA where I joined after completing my
Ph.D. in the machine learning group of the department of Computer Science at the University of Toronto.
In January 2018 I will be starting a faculty position in UC Berkeley's
Center for Computational Biology.
My area of expertise is in machine learning and applied statistics for computational biology. I'm interested in both methods development as well as application of methods to enable new insight into basic biology and medicine.
A recent print interview focused on my CRISPR work can be found here. If you're interested more generally in how machine learning and biology go together, check out this Talking Machines interview with me instead.
