Key Words: genomics; machine learning; neoantigens; cancer vaccines; personalized medicine
I received my PhD in Computer Science from NYU, where I worked on machine learning and runtime compilation for parallel hardware. After grad school I switched over to computational cancer immunotherapy research at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, where I helped start and run three personalized cancer vaccine trials. My current line of research focuses on optimizing personalized vaccination through better genomics and machine learning methods, as well as collaborating heavily with experimentalists to optimize vaccine formulation.
