👋🏽 Hi! I am a PhD student in the Department of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics at The George Washington University. I’m advised by Dr. Ali Rahnavard, and work for the Rahnavard Lab for ’Omics Data Science. I am broadly interested in the development of algorithmic and statistical methods for the analysis of various forms of ’omics data. I received by BA in Statistics from Carleton College.


I am currently working on software for the normalization, batch-correction, and drift adjustment of LC-MS metabolomics data. Our goal is to provide easy to use tools that allow researchers to combine, compare, and perform meta-analyses of multiple large scale metabolomics datasets.


massSight: an R package for the alignment and scaling of LC-MS metabolomics data.
