I am a computer scientist with interdisciplinary training in computer science, epigenomics, and the biology of aging. The overarching goal of my lab is to build integrative and innovative computational resources to uncover intricate regulatory programs in human cells and understand how these programs are disrupted by aging and aging-related diseases.

In my research, I use computational tools to uncover epigenetic patterns that can help explain variation in gene expression among cell types or groups of individuals. Currently, I am exploring the epigenetic roots of aging in immune cells, and my long-term vision is to understand how cells harness the many dimensions of the epigenome when making regulatory decisions, and how this balance is affected by disease and lifestyle.
