PhD in Statistics (Stanford University)
The Salzman Lab is primarily a computational data science laboratory focused on studying RNA biology with a secondary focus on validation and novel experimental design to enable statistical analysis of RNA expression. The group develops new data science methods to analyze the mechanism and function gene expression and RNA splicing. They design new methodology aiming to uncover how splicing is regulated at a single cell level and is dysregulated in diseases from viral infections to cancer. The Salzman Lab has active work in the area of analysis of massive single-cell sequencing projects such as Tabula Sapiens, spatial genomics and analysis of host response to SARS-CoV-2.
