I'm Darya Vanichkina, a Genomics Data Scientist at the Centenary Institute.
I use data to make sense of the world, and teach others to do the same.
I work as a postdoc at the Gene and Stem Cell Therapy Program of the Centenary Institute in Sydney, where I investigate how the mammalian genome works using next-generation sequencing. I hold a PhD in Genomics and Bioinformatics, and a Specialist Degree in Molecular Biology.
I’m proud to be a Software and Data Carpentry Instructor, Maintainer, Curriculum Contributor, and Mentor, and am passionate about enabling reproducible research using open source tools.
