I'm a freshly-minted Ph.D. (in Computational Biology from U.C. Berkeley) as of December 2016. I received a B.S. in Computer Science & Engineering from MIT in 2011.
It's important for me to be working vocationally towards societally positive goals (notably, not negative nor (debatably) neutral), so I decided to apply my computer science abilities towards the field of human health via biology.
I have around 10 years of daily experience programming in scripting languages like
R, a good understanding of computer science theory, a decent understanding of statistics theory, some experience with molecular biology and medicine (high depth in neurooncology), and some exposure to cheminformatics.
