Biography

I received my Ph.D. and M.A. from UC Berkeley Division of Biostatistics under the supervision of Mark van der Laan. My research at Berkeley included developing computationally intensive statistical methods for analysis of microarray data with applications in cancer biology. After graduating, I did a postdoc at UC Berkeley with Sandrine Dudoit. I developed Bioconductor open source software packages for clustering and multiple hypothesis testing. In 2003, I began a comparative genomics NIH Postdoctoral Fellowship in the labs of David Haussler and Todd Lowe in the Center for Biomolecular Science & Engineering at UC Santa Cruz. I was part of the Chimpanzee Sequencing and Analysis Consortium that published the sequence of the Chimp Genome, and I used this sequence to identify the fastest evolving regions in the human genome. In 2005, I joined the faculty at the UC Davis Genome Center and Department of Statistics. I moved to UCSF in Fall 2008.
