I am currently a second-year PhD student in the Computer Science Department at Stanford, working with Professor Daphne Koller. My research interests are in machine learning, computational biology and network analysis. I graduated in Spring '08 from Stanford with a Bachelors' in Computer Science. During my year off after graduation, I worked as a Research Officer in the Data Mining Department of the Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R), where I did research in machine learning, data mining and bioinformatics under Dr. See-Kiong Ng and Dr. Xiaoli Li.
