Hello! My name is Julie, and I’m from Staten Island, New York. This spring, I graduated from Northeastern University in Boston, with a major in Biology and Mathematics and a minor in History. During my time at Northeastern, I completed three co-ops, two in the pharmaceutical industry and one in science education at an international school in Germany. My first co-op was a drug manufacturing support position at Genzyme, and my most recent co-op was at Biogen conducting neuropharmacology research on Alzheimer’s disease. Based on these experiences, I am interested in pursuing more computational research to understand disease pathways and develop novel therapeutics. Outside of research, I enjoy reading, swimming, and community outreach.
My name is Honglei Ren. I received my masters and bachelors degree in Software Engineering from Beihang University in Beijing, China. During my graduate studies, I have done lots of interesting research in very different topics and fields, such as methylation data analysis and modeling of the cancer evolution, modeling the collaborations between the CpGs in DNA methylation with a data-driven method, predicting the citywide traffic accident by machine learning method, developing voiceprint identification method for remote accessing. My research interests spans a wide range of topics, including epigenetics, cancer, embryonic development and multi-scale biology. In addition to research, I like reading, watching movies and sports.
