Haynes Heaton

I am a computational biologist and medical doctor. I'm interested in computational and algorithmic methods to improve basic science and healthcare.

Currently I am a PhD student at the Sanger Institute and Cambridge University working with Richard Durbin and Mara Lawniczak on algorithmic and data analysis problems in genomics and single cell transcriptomics. Previously I was working at 10X Genomics working on fixing the limitations of current nextgen short read sequencing through algorithms using linked-read data which gives long range genetic information through reverse emulsion droplet technology and molecular barcodes.

I am currently on the job market for 2021. My research statement can be seen here and my teaching statement can be seen here.
