I am a computational biologist at
leading the Epigenetics group's next-gen sequencing analysis efforts as well as networks analysis work.
Before joining Biogen Idec I was a joint Postdoctoral Fellow in the labs of
Harvard Stem Cell Institute
There I applied diverse NGS-based assays to study chromatin dynamics and the epigenetic regulation of pluripotent cells during differentiation -
identifying novel mechanisms and factors controlling cell state change and developing new methods for studying heterogeneous cell populations.
I completed my Ph.D. at
in the labs of Bonnie Berger and
Srini Devadas, and
Susan Lindquist at the
Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research.
There I developed algorithms to characterize the folding and misfolding of proteins and RNA, and for modeling the inhibition of amyloid fibril formation.
