Computational Biologist + Designer + more

I solve problems in biology using code, and I make stuff.

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

I'm a sixth year PhD candidate in Computational Biology & Bioinformatics in the Dave Lab at Duke University, having graduated with a Dual Degree in Mechanical Engineering from IIT Bombay, minoring in Biosciences and Bioengineering. I make stuff using a variety of media including - but not limited to - wood, code, and design. I made the Wordle Archive, a project that brought joy to a lot of people and was visited almost 50 million times.

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

Scientists I've worked with:

Data + Design

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

I have participated in 36 Days of Type thrice. You can check my collections here - 2019, 2021 and 2023.

My toolkit:

  • Python
  • R
  • Adobe Illustrator
  • Adobe Photoshop
  • Processing
  • See Design


I like to create things. My medium can be wood or code. I made the Wordle Archive that was visited almost 50 million times.

In order to unwind, I like to walk, read, and play squash. I have been trying to walk as many streets in Durham, NC as I can - you can check out my progress here - WalkDurham.

I am fluent in 5 languages and am currently learning Spanish. You can also find me volunteering at the Durham Farmers' Market, the Durham Performing Arts Center, or the Bull City Woodshop.
