Research Focus

I am interested in using high-dimensional data to construct causal networks of interconnected molecular and phenotypic features and understanding how perturbations propagate across these networks causing diseases and aging. I also help to develop Calico’s capabilities for computational mass spectrometry, both to cast a wide net in search of biomarkers, but also so we can build principled integrative-omic models.

I spent my PhD developing methods for understanding metabolism at the interface of fluxes, metabolites and enzymes using high-dimensional data. I devoted my PostDoc to developing techniques for extracting additional information from such data modalities.
