About me

I am an assistant professor at UCLA in the Computer Science Department, the Department of Human Genetics, and the Department of Computational Medicine. Previously, I was a post-doctoral fellow at Harvard Medical School and the Broad Institute. I received a Ph.D in Computer Science at UC Berkeley. Before coming to Berkeley, I received a B.Tech in Computer Science from IIT, Madras.

I am broadly interested in problems at the intersection of computer science, statistics, and biomedicine. See my lab website for more information.
