Jean Fan


I am pursuing my PhD in Bioinformatics and Integrative Genomics at Harvard and am a student in Peter Kharchenko's lab at the Department of Biomedical Informatics. I also collaborate closely with Catherine Wu's lab at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. My research interest center around developing computational approaches for interpreting heterogeneity in single cell populations, particularly in the context of hematological malignancies such as CLL and MM. I am currently working on computational algorithms to identify and characterize subpopulations using single cell data.

Outside of research, I teach Computer Science Without Intimidation for 5th graders at The Innovation Institute. I am the founder and lead developer at cuSTEMized, a non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging girls in STEM with personalized storybooks.
