Hi, I'm Minji!

I am a first-year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Stanford University advised by Aaron Newman. I am interested in computational biology, decoding molecular biology data to discover the complex biological mechanisms underlying human diseases, especially cancer.

Before Stanford, I received B.S. in Computer Science and Engineering from Seoul National University advised by Jihong Kim and Sun Kim.

Outside of research, I love listening to music, playing the piano, taking photos, and drinking tea.
