Sarah is a first year graduate student in the Computational and Systems Biology
program co-advised by Professors Alex Shalek and Bonnie Berger. She is interested
in applying machine learning methods to better understand single cell genomic

Before starting at MIT, Sarah studied computer science at Rice University where
she worked on genome assembly algorithms. In her free time Sarah likes to
explore art museums, make crafts, and go for very slow runs.
