Hi! I’m Darya, a Data Scientist & Data Analytics trainer with a background in genomics and bioinformatics. I work at the University of Sydney’s Informatics Hub, where I develop advanced analytics training for research staff at the university and lend my data science and coding snafu to projects with university partners.
I hold a PhD in Genomics and Bioinformatics from the University of Queensland, where I investigated novel ncRNA transcription in human and mouse stem cell and nervous system development. I’ve also done a PostDoc at the Centenary Institute, investigating alternative splicing dynamics and regulation. You can have a look at my papers here.
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.
