Generating, Analyzing, and Understanding Sensory and Sequencing Information



2016-08-feenyRachel Feeny

Rachel Feeny is a graduate student in the Chemistry Ph. D. program working for Dr. Chuck Henry. Her research focuses on understanding how chemical gradients drive biological processes, such as cellular communication and cancer metastasis. The aim of her work is to develop a platform using a high-density electrode array and microfluidic devices to generate electrochemical images of biomarkers being released from live tissue slices with resolution in space and time.

Mark Heim

heimMark graduated from Colorado State University with a MS in Computer Science in Spring 2016. After finishing my bachelor’s degree in computer science and mathematics at CSU, Mark transitioned to a graduate program to begin working with Dr. Christina Boucher. He joined GAUSSI in his second year of graduate school and is modeling the genetics of endangered species for conservation biologists through the use of randomized simulations with parallel, distributed, and web-based computing technologies.
