Website is Live, Recent Awards

I decided that it was finally time to get an online presence, so I created this website using jekyll and GitHub pages to establish myself on the internet. I hope that this will continue to be an interesting project for me to work on and something that I can use to publicize my ongoing work and project.

Recently, I received the Rasmussen Doctoral Recruitment Award and the Engineering Distinguished Scholarship from Michigan State University. These awards will fund my first year of my PhD research. I am very humbled and honored to have received these awards. Just some motivation to help make that first year a great one!

On that vein, I am starting to read up on applying Topological Data Analysis to genomics. Right now, I am just testing the water to see if this is something that I would want to turn into a project, but I am so far very interested in this work.
