Data Scientist (Research Assistant)
Izzy completed an M.Eng. degree in computer science specializing in deep learning at the University of Bristol and also spent a year at Graz University of Technology in Austria.
Her research at the Samarajiwa lab involves applying machine learning and deep learning approaches to develop cancer early detection methods as well as delve into epigenetic (DNA and histone modifications, chromatin accessibility and non-coding RNA) and genomic processes involved in early carcinogenesis. Izzy will begin a Ph.D. in the lab starting in October 2020.
