I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Dana Pe'er Lab, Computational & Systems Biology Program at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC). I joined the Pe'er Lab in Columbia University in October 2014, prior to its move to MSKCC.
I received a PhD in Bioinformatics from Boston University in 2014, advised by James Galagan (Biomedical Engineering, BU) and in close collaboration with Edoardo Airoldi (Statistics, Harvard). I completed an MS degree in Electrical Engineering also from Boston University in 2010 and a BS in Electrical Engineering with a minor in Industrial Engineering from Sharif University of Technology in 2008. I gained additional experience at Microsoft Research (Redmond) in 2014.
Update: I will be starting my lab as Assistant Professor in Biomedical Engineering and Herbert and Florence Irving Professor of Cancer Data Research in Irving Institute for Cancer Dynamics, Columbia University starting Jan 1st, 2020. Please see azizilab.com for more information.
