Computational Biologist + Designer + more

I solve problems in biology using code, and I like playing with data/design.

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

I'm a fourth 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 playing with data and trying to identify the best way to visualize it. 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:

  • Immunoglobulin reconstruction
  • Non-coding transcription
  • Machine learning for gene networks
  • Decision making in phage bacteria interactions

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.
