I am a fourth-year PhD student in the Department of Biomedical Informatics and Medical Education (BIME) at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA. I study knowledge representation, biomedical ontologies, and ways to improve interoperability and content in biomedical knowledgebases. Here are my CV, my publications, and some work-related thoughts. You can also find me on Google Scholar, Research Gate, or LinkedIn.

I currently live in Seattle, Washington. I've previously lived in Baltimore, MD, Beijing, China, Cambridge, MA and Ellicott City, MD, all of which I consider home to varying degrees. In my spare time, I enjoy biking, hiking, foraging for mushrooms, playing go (weiqi), drinking tea, cooking, and working on miscellaneous projects. See photos for my latest exploits.

This winter, I am buried in my dissertation research on improving the interoperability of biological pathway resources.
