I trained as a Clinical Informatics and Delivery Science Fellow at Kaiser Permanente Northern California Division of Research. This program focused on applying cutting edge machine learning methods to electronic health record data, and how to translate research findings into clinical practice.
I received my Ph.D. from the Institute for Public Health Genetics at the University of Washington. The program is interdisciplinary, focusing on genetic analysis and technologies, and also on the ethical, legal, and social issues surrounding genetics.
I received a Bachelor’s of Science in Biology with honors, a Minor in Chemistry, and a Master’s of Science in Biology at Stanford University. I completed my honors thesis with Dr. Kari Nadeau on the role of regulatory T cells in controlling the T cell response in allergic asthma. .
I have completed additional training in science communication through the COMPASS workshops and the Science Communication Fellows Program at the Pacific Science Center.
