Our research combines machine learning and biology with the broad goals of data integration, model interpretation, and method development for biological and biomedical applications.

Join our lab!

The lab is looking for highly motivated students, with strong computational skills, who are excited about developing data-driven approaches to solve important problems in biology and health sciences.

If you are interested in joining the lab or collaborating with us, please e-mail ritambhara@brown.edu.

Required skills for lab members include basic UNIX/Linux competency and programming ability (preferably in python). Coursework or project experience in machine learning and/or deep learning is highly preferred.

Students at Brown, who are interested in joining the lab, are recommended to first attend the Deep Learning in Genomics course in the Fall (Graduate) and Spring (Undergraduate).
