My primary focus at JAX is on developing data management systems and tools for the exploration and visualization of complex biological data and its interpretation. As part of a multidisciplinary team at JAX, I frequently collaborate with both experimental and computational scientists on data analysis and visualization projects.
In my role as a Scientific Software Engineer, I am leading the JAX Synteny Browser, a novel tool for interactive visualization of regions of conserved synteny between two genomes based on their biological properties such as function and phenotypes.
Another hallmark initiative that I am closely involved in is JAX’s Patient–Derived Xenografts (PDX) program, a platform for data management, visualizations, analysis, reporting of cancer models studies. I lead the implementation of interactive visualizations for cancer treatment response studies (SOC) and develop automated software to run robust pipelines for the analysis of genomic variations in cancer models.
I am also a key member of the Mouse Phenome Database (MPD) project, an integrated platform to explore physiology and behavior through genetics and genomics, for which I create highly interactive data visualization tools using the latest cutting edge and open source technologies.
In addition, I also teach several data science and programming courses/workshops at JAX on coding skills in R, Python and SQL.
