I'm currently a software engineer at GRAIL . There, I work on writing infrastructure software to support tidy data practices in GRAIL’s breakthrough genomics research.
I am doing this by building pipelines to automate the generation of reproducible, adaptable, and compliant clinical data sets for downstream analysis, as well as creating tools to monitor these pipelines.
I studied biomedical engineering and minoring in computer science at Tufts University. My senior year, I worked as an undergraduate researcher at the Broad Insititue of MIT and Harvard where I developed RNA-Seq analysis workflows as part of my senior design project.
Prior to this, I worked as a software engineer at Illumina on the BaseSpace team developing an AWS-based microservice.
At Illumina, I developed an AWS based subscription service with Lambda and C# to support external clients of BaseSpace SequenceHub. This service utilized many AWS products in addition to Lambda, including SQS, DynamoDB, API Gateway, KMS encryption. As part of the development process, I attended scrum meetings, wrote unit tests, and worked with senior engineers on code reviews and testing in the development environment.
Node package that allows users to encrypt text into emoji.
Frogger style game that aims to get users to the dining hall as fast as possible, after answering CS quiz questions from Tufts professors. Utilized ExpressJS, MongoDB, Phaser.io, and Heroku.
R and Python scripts that generate custom visualizations of 16S amplicon sequencing data from an Illumina MiSeq, with the intention of use in the high school classrooms in the Greater Boston Area.
Outside of academics, I love to run. I ran my first half marathon in 2017 and can't wait to do another! I also enjoy baking and am told I make a mean chocolate chip cookie. Of course I also enjoy watching TV, with 30 Rock, Mr. Robot, and Parks and Rec being a few of my favorites.
