Yeast

Postdoc @ EMBL

Steinmetz group, Genome Biology Unit

I am developing machine learning approaches that leverage high-throughput multi-"omic" longitudinal profiling to understand how genetic variation influences aging.


EMBL Interdisciplinary Postdoctoral Fellow (EIPOD), June 2016

PhD @ ISB and UW

Baliga lab, Institute for Systems Biology

I inferred systems-scale gene regulatory networks for two microorganisms directly from gene expression data, discovering condition-specific co-regulated modules.


DOE Office of Science Graduate Research Fellow

More Seattle, WA | 2008 - 2014
RNA

BS & BA @ UNM

David Bear lab, Cell Biology and Physiology

I studied oligomerization of the poly(A) binding protein on mRNA poly(A) tails by transmission electron microscopy.

Terran Lane group, Computer Science

I investigated the role of combinatorial miRNA interactions in enhancing miRNA specificity.
