I am a graduate student in the Biophysics Graduate Group, advised by Michael I. Jordan and Michael R. DeWeese. Before I came to Berkeley, I was a Junior Research Fellow at the National Center for Biological Sciences in Bangalore, India. Before that, I completed a Masters degree in theoretical physics at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, Canada. I was an undergraduate at Amherst College, where I received a degree in physics.
To my surprise, it was my interest (early in graduate school) in neuroscience that eventually led me to do research in computer science and statistical physics.
