Postdoctoral Scholar at Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation
My Awesome Supervisor: Dr. Peggy Peissig
I am a postdoctoral scholar in Biomedical Informatics Research Center at Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation. I completed my Ph.D. in Computer Science Department, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, USA, where I was extremely fortunate to have the thesis committee of Prof. Zeyun Yu (Advisor), Prof. Ethan Munson, Prof. Ichiro Suzuki, Prof. Ramin Pashaie, and Dr. Heather Owen. I was a visiting student in the Computational Visualization Center at the University of Texas at Austin during May 2016. In the third year of my graduate study (Summer 2015), I worked as a research intern in the Center for Human Genetics at Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation, working on big data biomedical text mining for cancer research. At present, I am also a member of Biomedical Modeling and Visualization Laboratory at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. One of my life passions is to work closely with my professors and peers to learn their experiences and share with them. My lifetime hobbies have been spending time with my bountiful family, reading, and cycling. I often publish under Ahmad P. Tafti and/or A. P. Tafti .
