Biographical Sketch

Doug Jacobsen completed his Ph.D. in Bioinformatics from the University of Michigan in May 2012.  Doug's thesis research was both computational and experimental, integrating biophysics, chemistry, and bioinformatics.  He was previously in the NERSC User Services Group working with scientists from the Joint Genome Institute. He moved to the NERSC Computational Systems group where he will be spending part of his time helping deliver services developed for JGI data scientists to the larger NERSC community.
