I am a Senior Machine Learning Scientist at Genentech, where I am part of the Frontier Research team within Prescient Design. My research works toward trustworthy scientific inquiry and decision-making using machine learning, with a current focus on uncertainty quantification and statistical inference methods.

I received my Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences from UC Berkeley in August 2023, where I was advised by Michael I. Jordan and Jennifer Listgarten as an NSF Graduate Research Fellow. Prior to Berkeley, I was a Google AI Resident and also conducted marine biology fieldwork with Kakani Katija at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Insitute. I received my B.S. in Computer Science in 2016 from Stanford University.

Beyond research, I am an avid hiker, religious fan of artistic gymnastics and aroids, and proud mom to an extraordinary son.
