Joe

I am the Vice President, head of Translational Bioinformatics at Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMS) in the Princeton, NJ area.  Prior to joining BMS I worked for Novartis in Cambridge, MA from 2003 to 2015, holding positions of increasing responsibility.

I am an alumnus of Boston University’s Department of Biomedical Engineering, having completed my Ph.D. with Dr. Zhiping Weng in 2003.

While in graduate school, I also consulted at Compaq Computer Corporation’s Cambridge Research Laboratory with Dr. Simon Kasif. There I was privileged to work on several exciting computational and comparative genomics projects like the Human Genome Project as a member of the computational analysis group.  (True to form, Nature mis-spelled my last name!)

You can find my publications in my CV, on  PUBMED, or on Google Scholar.
