I'm a graduate student pursuing a PhD in the Molecular Biology Bioscience program at the University of Utah. I work on a variety of problems, mostly relating to genomic structural variation.
I earned my Bachelor's of Science Degree in Bioinformatics with a minor in Computer Science from Brigham Young University in 2016.
I developed a tool (published in GigaScience) for creating image views of genomic intervals, automatically storing them in the cloud, deploying a website to view/score them, and retrieving scores for analysis, with support for sequencing data from BAM or CRAM files from Illumina, or long-read technologies (ONT/PacBio).
In a project for a BYU CS Capstone in Big Data, my team (Artem Golotin, Darian Ramage, and I) developed a scalable system for monitoring streaming seismic signals in a developing aftershock sequence. This could be used to study earthquakes in more detail (as well as to identify illicit nuclear testing). Presented at LLNL and BYU.
