I am a Teaching Assistant Professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). I graduated from Northwestern University with a triple major in Computer Science, Molecular Biology and Genomics, and Integrated Sciences; my Ph.D was in Computational Biology at Carnegie Mellon where I developed algorithms and data structures for scalable storage, search, and analysis of large genomic data collections.

At UIUC, I work to develop new pedagogical tools and approaches for scalable teaching and mentorship, for broadening participation in computing, and for improving undergraduate research experiences.
