Trainer, Organiser, Contributor
I am the Senior Bioinformatics Trainer at the Harvard School of Public Health Bioinformatics Core (HBC). My focus on developing bioinformatics workshops and training modules of various lengths for the Harvard community through funding from HMS and HNDC. My passion is to make genomic data and its analysis accessible to everyone. I have spent the last several years training wet lab biologists to independently perform bioinformatics analyses.
I joined the core in Fall 2014 from the High-Performance Biological Computing (HPCBio) group at University of Illinois (UIUC) where I was involved in several research projects, and was in charge of the training program. My background is in molecular biology, with a Ph.D. from Dartmouth College. I switched to computational work as a postdoctoral fellow, at UIUC, when I started studying the impact of stress factors on the health of honey bees. My sequence-based analysis repertoire includes metagenomics, metatranscriptomics, RNA-Seq, genome and transcriptome assembly, in species across the spectrum of life.
