About Me

I'm a first year PhD student in the Computational Biology and Bioinformatics program at Duke University.

My fascination with computational modelling is matched by my interest in the complexities of biological systems. Systems biology examines a large variety of complex phenomenon that can be better understood through the use of computers.
