I am a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Applied Mathematics at University of Massachusetts Boston.
Previously, I worked at Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard as a Postdoctoral Associate (2019-2023) at different labs and centers: Regev Lab (supervised by Aviv Regev ), Golub Lab (supervised by Todd Golub), and Eric and Wendy Schmidt Center (supervised by Caroline Uhler).
Before joining the Broad Institute, I was a Postdoctoral Assistant Professor at the Math Department, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. I held a double appointment also as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Biomedical and Clinical Informatics Lab, Department of Computational Medicine and Bioinformatics at UMICH.
I received my Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) in May 2017 working under the supervision of Professor Bruce Reznick.
My research focuses on formulating novel, mathematically sound theoretical frameworks to perform analysis of multi-modal, multi-dimensional data while preserving the integrity of their structure. I work on the generalization of matrix-based compression, noise elimination, and dimension reduction methods to higher dimensions. My background is at the intersection of algebraic geometry, multi-linear algebra, combinatorics, and representation theory. I explore applications in bioinformatics and cancer genomics. Currently, I work on the formulation of the novel, mathematically sound tensor-based frameworks, and the development of computational tools to model tumor microenvironments.
