Miriam Huntley

I am currently working at Day Zero Diagnostics, a startup I co-founded with some very passionate friends and colleagues. We are using whole genome sequencing and machine learning to build a rapid diagnostic for infectious diseases - a problem that is in desperate need of modernization!

In May 2016 I graduated with a PhD from Harvard University in Applied Math at the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. I was fortunate to be co-advised for my PhD by Michael Brenner (Applied Math, Harvard University) and Erez Lieberman Aiden (Department of Molecular and Human Genetics, Baylor College of Medicine). During my PhD I developed methods (algorithms and theory) for analyzing biological data, studying topics ranging from 3D genome folding to random matrix theory to self-assembly - you can read all about it in my PhD thesis. I did my undergraduate work at MIT where I earned a BSc in Physics in 2009 and did my undergraduate thesis on CVD-grown graphene with Ray Ashoori.
