Bio

Prior to joining SJSU I worked as a data scientist/software developer at the Joint Genome Institute, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, for 8 years. There I wrote software pipelines for automated processing of high-throughput sequencing data, and assembled and analyzed hundreds of novel genomes and transcriptomes. Before that I was an associate research scientist at Columbia University for 1.5 years doing large scale analysis of cancer data. Prior to that I worked in Dresden, Germany as a software architect at a spin-off of the TU (Technical University) Dresden for 2.5 years developing software for protein structure data analysis. Previously, I was a post-doc in the Bioinformatics group of the Biotechnology Center of the TU Dresden for 2 years. My teaching experience includes serving as Adjunct Professor at Diablo Valley College, lecturer at York University, Toronto (2 years), teaching assistant at University of Toronto and McMaster University (4 years), as well as giving workshops at UC Berkeley.
