Hello, world! I'm a PhD student at UW, and I study machine learning and biomedical informatics with Mark Craven. Previously, I was a predoctoral trainee in the NLM-funded Computation and Informatics in Biology and Medicine Training Program. I did my undergraduate degree in computer science at beautiful Carleton College in Northfield, MN.

The central problem of my research is to infer the relevant intracellular pathways involved in a biological response; for example, the host pathways that modulate the replication of a virus in a host cell, or the signaling pathways that regulate a yeast cell's transcriptional response to a stressful environment. We've been developing methods using integer linear programming and diffusion kernels to approach this problem.
