Amulya Shastry

Hello, I am a PhD student in Bioinformatics program at BU. I am co-mentored by Dr. Campbell and Dr. Stefano Monti. I joined the Campbell lab in summer of 2022 after doing a rotation. I have bachelors of engineering in Biotechnology from Visweswaraya technological University (VTU) and masters in Bioinformatics from Northeastern University. I have previously worked at FLNCR/NIH, as a Bioinformatics Analyst. Currently my research focuses on using machine learning approaches to understand host-driven sub-phenotypes in severe pneumonia. My other research interests involve microbiome research, cancer genomics and bioinformatics pipeline development.

Natasha Gurevich

I am a Ph.D. student in the Bioinformatics Program at Boston University. I joined the lab in 2022 and I am focusing on mutational signature discovery and prediction, as well as the benchmarking of deconvolution algorithms. I received my undergraduate degree in quantitative biology at the University of Delaware, where I developed a pipeline for the meta-analysis of sex-based differences in human sequencing studies.

Rui Hong

Research: I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Bioinformatics Program at Boston University. I previously worked at University of Pennsylvania as Research Assistant to build a computational pipeline to identify RNA-editing events for single-cell RNA-seq data. Now I am focusing on building an R package for single-cell ATAC-seq data analysis and visualization. Email: rzhong@bu.edu

Kelly Geyer

Research: I am a Statistics Ph.D. candidate at Boston University. Currently, I’m developing novel Bayesian models for the single cell analysis. Previously, I was a staff member at MIT Lincoln Laboratory where I developed tools for text analytics and signal processing. Email: klgeyer@bu.edu
