Bryan Quach Genetrics, curriculum in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology Broadly, my research interests involve the development and application of computational and statistical techniques for mining and analyzing ibological data sets. I a currently a graduate research assistant in Dr. Terry Furey’s computational genomics group where I am developing a dscriminative machine learning framework to integrate complementary data types for transcription factor binding site prediction. I enjoy conducting exploratory data anlysis to uncover patterns or applied to superised machine learning methods for classificaion tasks in genomics. I am most intrigued by biological problems related to studying chromatin dynamics and gene regulation in the context of disease and environmental stress.

Jae Ho “Mike” Lee Department of¬†Mathematics I am interested in Mathematical Mathematical Medicine/Physiology and Computational Sciences. Starting in Fall 2014, I joined Professor Boyce Griffit’s Cardiovascualr and Modeling Simulation Group as a graudate research assistant. I am involved in developing mathematical and computational tools to develop physiological models that can be used to study various heart diseases. My goal is not only to enrich my knowledge and experience in the field of computational medicine, but also to seek more direct and tangible ways to use mathematics for the betterment of human health.
