About

Currently working as a bioinformatician at GenomeDx Biosciences (Vancouver) in their Clinical Development Team. As part of this team, I get to use my 4 years of schooling and 2 years of bioinformatics experience to help facilitate the development of new cancer-targeted genomic classifiers. Primarily at work I serve three main roles: Microarray & Wetlab Quality ControlĀ  Data Analysis, Infrastructure Development, and Database Development & Curation. My day to day work is done programming primarily in R, PostgreSQL & Bash.

Prior to working at GenomeDx I held an internship at the Alberta Children’s Hospital in Calgary, during this time I was responsible for developing & maintaining a web-based Galaxy pipeline for variant analysis of Illumina HiSeq/MiSeq (NGS) whole-exome sequencing data (using Perl & XML).

My skills:

  • R
  • Shell Scripting (Bash)
  • PostgreSQL
  • Workflow Design & Management
  • Genomic and Wetlab Quality Control
  • Data Normalization
  • Amazon AWS EC2 + S3

Familiar Data:
