Leonardo Torres graduated from the Undergraduate Program in Genomic Sciences from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) in 2009 and worked for two years at Winter Genomics analyzing high-throughput sequencing data. I then got a Ph.D. in the Department of Biostatistics at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health thanks to a CONACyT scholarship awarded in 2011. I worked with Jeff Leek and Andrew Jaffe in developing derfinder, regionReport, recount as well as other applied projects.
At the Lieber Institute for Brain Development, I am part of the Data Science team whose goals include better understanding and characterizing genomics signatures in the human brain, including DNA methylation and gene expression. I help mentor other team members, provide support for LIBD projects, and I am advancing my academic career as part of Andrew Jaffe’s lab.
I have mastered teaching Biostatistics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Management, and Psychology for students across all levels of education. My teaching model encompasses techniques designed to cater for students with lower retaining capacity and fast-learners alike. Do you have any challenges in the study areas mentioned above? Contact me, and together we will make the learning process enjoyable!
