I am a fifth-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, natural language processing techniques for biomedical texts, 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 primarily in San Francisco, CA. In my spare time, I enjoy cycling, hiking, foraging for mushrooms, playing go (weiqi), drinking tea, cooking, and working on miscellaneous projects. See photos for my latest exploits.

This fall, I am working as an RA in the Department of Radiology and making progress on my dissertation research on improving the interoperability of biological pathway resources.
