I am an Assistant Professor in Duke University’s Department of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology, Department of Medicine, and Institute for Genome Sciences & Policy.

From the fall of 2010 until  2013, I was a Junior Fellow at Harvard University’s Society of Fellows. There, I worked with Peter Turnbaugh on the human microbiome.

I received my PhD in Computational & Systems Biology from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2010 (where I trained with Eric Alm), and I completed my undergraduate studies in Biomedical Engineering from Columbia University in May of 2005 (where I trained with Chris Wiggins).

My complete academic history is provided in my curriculum vitae.
