Graduate students

Graduate students in our lab will be on collaborative teams with the goal of building generalizable software to solve complex problems in genomics. The goal and expectation is for each student to graduate with expertise in modeling and data analysis as well as expertise in an area of functional genomics.

We take UCLA students from Biomathematics, Bioinformatics, Genetics and Genomics, Computer Science, and related programs.

The students we expect will thrive in our lab come from diverse backgrounds but are not limited to:
