Dear All, I am a 36 year old computational biologist who has been a staff scientist at various places including The Johns Hopkins Institute of Genetic Medicine and The Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT. I cut my teeth as a young student at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore Maryland, splitting my time between the engineering school and the Peabody Conservatory of Music. A rough academic start soon gave way to me becoming a teaching assistant for the computer science department. My initial difficulties with learning computer programming is the key reason why I was able to offer an intuitive approach to understanding this subject for other undergraduates. Since my undergraduates days, I have continued my love of teaching as a private tutor, focusing on computer science (my first love), genetics (my research specialty), and statistics (an indispensable form of expression for research). Most importantly, I have endeavored to promote an intuitive way of teaching that focuses on concepts first. I strongly believe that if one can explain what the numbers are doing in prose, then the numbers will follow. Looking forward to solving some problems with you.
I have been publishing peer-reviewed papers in the subject of genetics for 12 years now; all papers in prestigious journals including Nature and PLOS Genetics. Through my research, I am familiar with the latest regarding this topic, and through academic training at such places like Johns Hopkins, I am familiar with the basics of genetics.
