I am Saket Choudhary. I recently graduated from the University of Southern California (USC) with a Ph.D. in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics. Before joining USC, I graduated with a Bachelors and Masters in Chemical Engineering from IIT Bombay. I also did a Masters in Computer Science and Statistics while at USC.
In my Ph.D. I developed methods to understand translational-regulation, making it easier to separate noise from signal. I also dabble in making mundane bioinformatics task easier, streamlining pipelines, and write code to enable easier retrieval of data and metadata. More broadly, I am interested in understanding transcriptional- and translational- regulation in a cross-species context.
Why Piddling Pertinent?¶
Piddling = Trivial | Pertinent = Relevant
=> Piddling Pertinent = Trivial yet relevant
