Joselyn Chavez, Ph.D

Postdoctoral Fellow

Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai

During my PhD project, in the Computational Genomics Laboratory at IBT-UNAM, I focused on the study of bacterial transcriptional regulators through evolution. Additionally, I gained experience in writing R/Bioconductor packages and teaching R.

Currently, I’m a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Personalized Medicine of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, in New York City. My main interest is bioinformatics and the development of open source software for the analysis of single cell and spatial transcriptomics.

Besides my research project, I enjoy teaching R and participating in activities that help expand the community of software developers in Latin America.
