Emily E. Burke works at the Lieber Institute as a Data Scientist under Dr. Andrew Jaffe. She is interested in the analysis of epigenetic data, including DNA methylation and RNA sequencing, to deepen understanding of the mechanisms of psychiatric disorders. Prior to joining Lieber, Emily earned a B.S. in Operations Research & Engineering from Cornell University and received her Master’s degree in Biostatistics from Duke University in 2016. Her master’s project focused on analyzing DNA methylation levels in reproductive cells to examine the effects of obesity on epigenetic inheritance. As part of the Data Science team at Lieber, Emily develops and applies computational pipelines and statistical models for use in the analysis of genomics projects across the Institute.
