I’m an assistant professor of Public Health at the University of Virginia School of Medicine. I founded UVA’s Bioinformatics Core in 2011 and have since served as director.
Originally trained in molecular biology, I obtained my PhD in computational genetics and an MS in statistics, and did a postdoc in epidemiology. I work directly with collaborators to provide bioinformatics consulting, study design, and data analysis expertise, working closely with investigators in the experimental design and analysis of genome-scale research, including studies of gene expression, protein-DNA binding, DNA methylation, and DNA variation, and metagenomics, using both array and next-generation sequencing technologies.
I have worked in the DoD community for several years, and I’m also a registered United States patent agent.
