EDCB PhD Programme
I am an incoming PhD student of the Computational and Quantitative Biology (EDCB) Program at EPFL. Originally from the United States, I completed my BSc in Molecular Biology and Computer Science at the University of Pittsburgh before working as a bioinformatician at EMBL Heidelberg.
During my studies, I have been captivated by the rapidly-growing field of bioinformatics in light of the big data boom and ongoing advances in next-generation sequencing technologies. I will use a hybrid of novel experimental and computational methods to explore the neurodevelopment of the retina in several species. I also aim to contribute to the expansion of the bioinformatics toolkit available to the genomics community. I am excited to be part of an interdisciplinary team and a university with a strong reputation for working at the interface of biology and computation.
