I love coding and data analysis! I am most familiar with bioinformatics analysis and have 9+ years in NGS data analysis. I can help you with your experimental design, on-prem and cloud computing infrastructure design, all the way to hands-on data analysis and reporting. I can also help you with technical training.
I have over 15 years of experience in international interdisciplinary research. I have in-depth knowledge of statistics, computer science, and biology. I was previously a computational biologist at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute where she worked on a genetic interaction map for Caenorhabditis elegans. As a statistician, I also worked at Winton Capital Management in London on Transaction Cost Analysis. I was a bioinformatics scientist at Illumina Ltd. in Cambridge, UK, working on algorithms on next-generation sequencing data. I joined the Inova Translational Medicine Institute in 2013 as a Senior Bioinformatics Scientist and was promoted to Chief of Division of Bioinformatics in 2017. Since starting my career, I have published in numerous high profile journals including Nature, Nature Genetics, Cell, PNAS, Molecular Biology and Evolution.
I have a Ph.D. degree in Biometry (Biological Statistics) from Cornell University, where I developed statistical models to model the processes of molecular evolution using sequence data. I hold M.S. degrees in Biometry and Computer Science from Cornell University. I also have a B.S. degree in Genetics, Bacteriology, Mathematics, Computer Sciences and Statistics from the University of Wisconsin - Madison. Recently I obtained AWS solutions architect associate and Machine Learning Specialty certificates.
