Academics

I am currently a PhD student in Computer Science at Stanford University, working with Daphne Koller. My area of research is probabilistic models for biological problems. I completed my degree in Computer Engineering with Honours Mathematics in 2008 from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada.
