My predoctoral training was in machine learning, and received Ph.D. in Molecular Genetics from the University of Toronto (2011). I joined Dr. Michael Snyder's group at Stanford Genetics as a Banting Postdoctoral Fellow (2011-2016), where I developed multi-omics strategies to identify molecular components in complex human diseases. I later received training in clinical research as an Instructor with Drs. Gary Shaw and David K. Stevenson at Stanford Pediatrics (2016-2019), where I performed genomic analyses to solve neonatal conditions.
The main theme of my research is large-scale analysis of disease genomes by integrating multi-omics data, evolutionary insights, electronic health records, as well as digitized clinical traits from imaging and wearable sensor readouts. The ultimate goal is to build a data-driven framework to detect diseases before symptoms emerge and to achieve precision health management.
