At the Lieber Institute for Brain Development, I am part of the Data Science team whose goals include better understanding and characterizing genomics signatures in the human brain, including DNA methylation and gene expression. I help mentor other team members, provide support for LIBD projects and I am advancing my academic career as part of Andrew Jaffe’s lab.
As a quick background, I graduated from the Undergraduate Program on Genomic Sciences (the About page is in English) from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) in 2009 and worked for two years at Winter Genomics analyzing high-throughput sequencing data. I then got a PhD in the Department of Biostatistics at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health thanks to a CONACyT scholarship awarded in 2011. I worked with Jeff Leek and Andrew Jaffe in developing derfinder, regionReport, recount as well as other applied projects.

While working at Winter Genomics I taught two courses for students of the Biomedical Sciences PhD Program (PDCB) from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM).
While I was at the Institute of Biotechnology (UNAM) working with the Winter Genomics crew I organized two courses. One was a series of various bioinformatics and biology mini-courses and another one involved members of different institutions.
I taught three courses during my undergrad stage at the Undergraduate Program on Genomic Sciences (LCG). Each of these courses has its own website organizing the material. These are:
