I am currently doing independent research under the mentorship of a Ph.D. candidate student from Yale University in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics. I want to actively pursue a career exploring the unique intersection of computer science and biology. To achieve this, I am currently taking honors and advanced courses with a GPA of 100.7/100, In addition to my curriculum, I am also doing an independent study this semester in AI / ML and plan to continue this next year.
