Dr. Sordo Vieira joined The Jackson Laboratory in July 2018 to work in the Laubenbacher laboratory as a postdoctoral associate. His main interests lie in cancer systems biology. He is particularly interested in multi-scale mathematical modeling incorporating genetic and epigenetic data to investigate the role of iron and the tumor microenvironment on cancer progression. He was previously a postdoctoral fellow for one year at UConn Health's Center for Quantitative Medicine working on mathematical analysis of intracellular signaling networks.
As a graduate student at the University of Kentucky, Dr. Sordo Vieira received the prestigious National Science Foundation Graduate Student Fellowship and proved a major part of an old number theoretic conjecture. He graduated Summa Cum Laude from Wayne State University in 2012 with a B.S. in Mathematics and a minor in physics.
A JAX postdoctoral associate was recently awarded a fellowship in Science Policy from the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics that will allow him to advocate for support of science research with federal officials and congressional staff.
