Maria Chikina Awarded NSF Career Grant

Congratulations is in order for Dr. Maria Chikina!! She has been awarded an NSF Career Grant for her project, “Concise descriptors of genomic data facilitate mechanistic inference”.


The project will leverage cutting edge machine learning to develop automated and scalable approaches for summarizing  genomic datasets into concise biological descriptors that capture the data generating mechanisms as low dimensional representations.  The project will also develop interactive education materials for teaching data science across educational levels and technical backgrounds.
