I grew up in Seoul, Korea and completed my undergraduate studies at New York University in 2020. I majored in Mathematics with a focus on mathematical modeling and simulation. At NYU, I was fortunate to work with Dr. Charles S. Peskin on mathematical modeling in congenital heart disease, with an emphasis on pulmonary hypertension. After graduating, I worked as a computational biologist at Memorial Sloan Kettering Institute. There, I was guided by Dr. Quaid Morris, implementing cancer evolution software package and working on a bayesian machine learning method applied in high-dimensional setting.
Thereafter, my research interests intersect machine learning and computational biology. I started graduate school at Penn in 2021 and joined the Biociphers group to continue my interest in machine learning and computational biology.
