Yi-Chieh (Jessica) WuEmail: lookup
I am currently a fourth year EECS Ph.D. student in Manolis Kellis' Computational Biology Group, which is a part of the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) at MIT. I work on phylogenetics and comparative genomics with a focus on domain evolution.
I graduated summa cum laude from Rice University in May 2007 with a B.S.E.E. (Electical Engineering) and a focus in systems. While there, I also worked in Professor Lydia Kavraki's Physical and Biological Computing Group, where I used robotic algorithms to model protein flexibility.
Back in Summer 2006, I worked in Professor Anvar Zakhidov's Nanophysics for Devices Group at UT Dallas as part of the Welch Summer Scholar Program. I studied the structure and characteristics of photonic crystals.
I am also an official EECS blogger.
