Lyla Atta

MD-PhD Candidate, Johns Hopkins University


I am an MD-PhD student at Johns Hopkins University. I am currently pursuing a PhD in Biomedical Engineering in the JEFworks lab. I am interested systems biology and data science and am excited about how computational and mathematical methods can be used to understand complexity in disease.

I received my undergraduate degree in Biological Engineering at MIT with a minor in Statistics and Data Science. As an undergraduate, I conducted research in systems biology and synthetic biology.

Outside of my research, I am interested in data science education and medical education and in my free time, I like to go to art and history museums and take photographs.
