I am a third year undergraduate student from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and will graduate in December 2012. I joined Dr. Carbone's lab in Summer of 2011 and have implemented several tools (XMLs) in the SNAP Workbench portal. Initially I developed the component XMLs of a comprehensive workflow for processing and assembling next generation sequence data. My interests are in developing workflows for simplifying complex metagenomic and population genetic analyses as well as visualization of multidimensional data within a phylogenetic framework.
