About Me

I am a computational biologist and computer scientist at 10X Genomics. I was previously a senior staff scientist at The Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard where I worked on the development of the DISCOVAR and DISCOVAR de novo genome assembly algorithms. At 10X, I work on algorithms for genome assembly that utilize the unique data that 10X produces.

My post-doctoral work, as well as my doctoral dissertation research, was performed at Children’s Hospital Boston and Harvard Medical School where I worked on image analysis problems related to newborn brain imaging, adolescent sequelae of premature birth, and childhood epilepsy.

I completed my Ph.D. in Cognitive and Neural Systems in 2010 studying computational neuroanatomy at Boston University, my master’s in Computer Science at MIT in 2002 studying computer vision for image-guided surgery, and my Bachelor’s in Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania in 1991.

Between academic programs, I’ve worked at the National Institutes of Health in both the (then) Division of Computer Research and Technology on parallel algorithms and systems software, and at the National Institute of Mental Health on PET image analysis in schizophrenia.  I’ve also held industry posts at govWorks, Inc., a dot-com era web startup, and at Nokia.
