My name is Jesper Maag. I am a Swedish scientist with a Ph.D. in Medicine (Computational Biology) from the Garvan Institute of Medical Research/UNSW, Sydney, Australia. I did a postdoctoral fellowship in Computational Biology at NYU School of Medicine. Currently, I am working as a Senior Computational Biologist at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) in New York City.
I am a highly motivated and productive Computational Biologist experienced in next generation sequencing analysis. Through my Ph.D. and postdoc, I have developed analysis pipelines, conducted data and statistical analysis of complex genomic datasets, visualised and successfully communicated the results in multiple peer-reviewed publications and presentations at both national and international conferences. I have effectively and successfully led, managed, and worked in collaborative, multi-national, research teams. I am highly adaptable, a quick learner, and a self-taught coder — all of which have made me successful in analysing the complexity of the genome.
