Kellis Lab, Computational Biology, MIT.

Since June 2011, I have been working as a postdoctoral researcher under the guidance of Manolis Kellis in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab of MIT and the Broad Institute. I am currenty working on high-throughput epigenetic analysis and its applications to human disease. I did my Ph.D. at Duke University with David MacAlpine in the Program in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics and the Pharmacology and Cancer Biology Department. With Dave I focused on a computational analysis of the chromatin determinants of the eukaryotic replication program, and graduated in May 2011.
