“Building containerized workflows using the BioDepot-workflow-builder”

Biography: I am a Professor in the School of Engineering and Technology at University of Washington – Tacoma, and an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Microbiology at University of Washington – Seattle. My research focuses on the development of methods and software tools that leverage cloud and container technology that will allow biomedical researchers to build modular reproducible bioinformatics workflows. In particular, I am strongly committed to develop publicly available software tools for the biomedical community to facilitate reproducible research of big biomedical data.

I am a computer scientist by training (Ph.D. in Computer Science from University of Washington – Seattle under the supervision of Larry Ruzzo). My research spans multiple fields, including computational biology, big data analytics, cloud computing, virtualization, reproducibility of research, statistics and machine learning.

The UW Data Science Seminar is an annual lecture series at the University of Washington that hosts scholars working across applied areas of data science, such as the sciences, engineering, humanities and arts along with methodological areas in data science, such as computer science, applied math and statistics. Our presenters come from all domain fields and include occasional external speakers from regional partners, governmental agencies and industry.

All seminars will be hosted virtually for the 2020-2021 academic year, and are free and open to the public.
