I’m a PhD candidate at the University of Pennsylvania within the Genomics and Compuatational Biology graduate group. I got my undergrad degree in bioinformatics from Baylor University while drinking Dr. Pepper floats and watching the bears.
My current research project is centered around taking advantage of publicly available gene expression data with transfer learning.
In general, I’m interested in understanding the conditions under which information transfers between problems. The current paradigm of training a single model per problem has many applications, but doesn’t appear to be how humans go about learning.
I enjoy running along the Schuylkill River trail in Philly, and am currently training up to a marathon distance. I’m also a moderately competitive Smash Bros Ultimate player, a mostly retired swimmer, and a decent bass 2 singer.
