I am a Ph.D. Graduand at Boston University studying bioinformatics. I have B.S and M.S. degrees in Statistics.
NEWS: I recently defended my dissertation! I will be starting a T32 postdoctoral fellowship at BU School of Medicine studying cardiovascular epidemiology this summer :)
As a member of Dr. W. Evan Johnson's lab, my current research is focused on creating open-source methods and tools for longitudinal microbiome analysis. I've created an R package, LegATo, that simplifies this analysis process.
I contributed to and currently maintain two packages on Bioconductor:
The TBSignatureProfilerAn easy-to-use R package for analysis of RNA-seq data using gene signatures for tuberculosis presence, risk, progression, treatment failure, and other disease states.
MetaScope: A complete R-based 16S, metagenomic, and metatranscriptomic profiling package that can accurately identify the composition of microbes at a strain-level resolution within a sample.
You can see my full list of publications on Google Scholar and ORCiD.
