Kumar Thurimella

I am a current MD/PhD student split between the University of Colorado-School of Medicine and the University of Cambridge. As an applied mathematician/software engineer turned future physician, I am excited to apply my computational and mathematical background to help in the discovery of mechanisms behind inflammatory diseases of the gut.

I am about to begin the PhD portion of my training in Biotechnology and Mathematics/Statistics where I will be working with Dr. Roisin Owens and Dr. Sergio Bacallado. I was recently awarded the Gates Cambridge Scholarship and Rotary International Scholarship, to whom I am grateful for funding my PhD.

Previously, I worked as a Software Engineer at Uber for 3 years. I also completed my MPhil at Cambridge working at the Sanger Institute and my BS in Applied Mathematics at University of Colorado-Boulder.
