Chemical engineering & data science applied to biology
BioHi I am Henry! I am a PhD student at the University of California, Berkeley studying Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering. I am interested in the intersection of nanotechnology, data science, and biology. In particular I am developing delivery tools for genetic manipulation of plants. Outside of academia I love sports and the outdoors. I play tennis on the UC Berkeley club team and spend my time hiking in the Bay Area.
Data Science Applied to Biological Phenomena
The age of data science is upon us, a diverse array of massive data sets are now publicly available. Insight into many biological phenomena may hide in these data sets, waiting to be discovered. Potential ideas include leveraging publicly available SARS-COV-2 genomic data to identify trends in infection, mortality or risk-factors, mining RNA-seq data to study transcriptional changes in gene group expression under different circumstances (drug treatment, etc), or predicting protein-nanomaterial interactions from protein composition/folding data.
