About

I’m a postdoctoral researcher in the Murray lab at Harvard, where I am creating and munching data from biological experiments. Most of the time I’m trying to figure out what yeast cells have done while growing on a Petri dish – you can read more about this on my research website.

Yeast colonyThe fluorescence microscopy picture on the left (which is also my avatar) shows a colony of two types of yeast, one labeled in yellow and one labeled in blue, after 1 week of growth. I used MATLAB’s image analysis and statistical tool sets to derive meaning from this image and hundreds like it.

In my research career and in my personal life, I have always enjoyed finding meaning in data. I therefore decided to explore the path of data science, and started this blog as a travel diary during this exciting journey.
