Last year, her research on 3-point shooting won the best poster award in the Research Paper Competition at the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, which led to her presenting her research at the 2017 NBA summer league. In addition to her work with Noah Basketball, Rachel is a PhD candidate in Bioinformatics at UCSD, where she received a NSF Graduate Research Fellowship to fund her computational cancer immunology research. Her research focuses on algorithmic classification of genomic regions that impact cancer progression.
