Bioinformatics Data Wrangler @ Computercraft; former assistant research professor working with Dassanayake lab.@LSU. I studied plant comparative genomics, especially for those found in “extreme” environments a.k.a. extremophytes.
2022-05-03: Hoping I could assist developing comparative genomics resources for broader scientific community, I moved to Computercraft (see above). Fingers crossed :)
2022-05-02: The pandemic-long collaboration, studying a fascinating innovation in extremophyte root growth strategy under stress, was published in Nat Plants. I focused on providing a framework for comparative DAP- and RNA-seq analyses (see short tweetorial).
2022-01-10: I presented Phylogenetically informed Profiling (PiP), an attempt to identify functions with lineage(s)-specific GRN modifications, at the “virtual” Plant & Animal Genome Conference (PAGXXIX), Arabidopsis Informatics workshop (see re-recorded talk).
