I'm a postdoc in Prof. Chris Adami's lab at MSU, and my research focus is understanding the evolution of drug resistance in HIV-quasispecies. Broadly, my research interests lie in computational analysis of biological data using machine learning approaches. I am especially interested in studying viral systems such as HIV.
