Welcome! I am scientist interested in genetics, genomics and microbiomics. I enjoy using quantitative methods to extract as much information as possible from an experiment. I obtained my Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics at the California Institute of Technology, where I did my graduate work with Paul Sternberg figuring out how to use transcriptomes as phenotypes for genetic analysis in C. elegans. Next, I did a brief postdoc with Eric Alm at MIT on the gut microbiome before transitioning into the Computational Biology unit at eGenesis.
