I am an Assistant Professor at the Computer Science department in the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC).

Previously, I was a postdoctoral research associate at Princeton University with Dr. Ben Raphael. I received my PhD in October 2015 at Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica and VU University Amsterdam in the Netherlands, where I worked with Dr. Gunnar Klau and Dr. Jaap Heringa. Please see my CV for more details.

My research focuses on tumor phylogenetics in the context of intra-tumor heterogeneity. I develop phylogeny inference algorithms to study the progression of a tumor from its initial stage, where a healthy cell acquires its first somatic mutation, to the final stages, where tumor cells metastasize and invade and colonize distant organs and tissues.
