Computational Biologist + Designer + more

I solve problems in biology using code, and I like to make things.

Hi, I'm Devang! Nice to meet you.

I'm a fifth year PhD student (2018 - ) in Computational Biology & Bioinformatics in the Dave Lab at Duke University, having graduated with a Dual Degree (Bachelor & Master) in Mechanical Engineering from IIT Bombay, minoring in Biology. I like to make stuff using a variety of media including - but not limited to - wood, code, and design. I'm constantly working on bettering myself and honing my repertoire of diverse skills along the way.

Computational Biology

I enjoy developing algorithms and pipelines to answer fundamental questions in biology.

Areas I've worked on:

  • Cancer genomics
  • T-cell therapies
  • Immunoglobulin reconstruction
  • Machine learning for gene networks

Amazing scientists I've worked with:

Data + Design

I like to search for and visualize unusual trends in data that is otherwise ubiquitous.

My toolkit:

  • Python
  • Adobe Illustrator
  • Adobe InDesign
  • Adobe Photoshop
  • See Design

In order to unwind, I read, climb, and play squash. I've recently begun contributing to open source bio-informatics projects. I like uncorking old wine and learning new languages.
