Welcome! I am currently a Computational Biologist at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC), and serve as Deputy Editor of Journal of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (JMRI). When I am not working, I enjoy cooking, listening to podcasts, and writing down my thoughts. Check out my website to find more information about my research, and publications.
