Alexander Ionkov is a third year student in Computer Science at the University of Wisconsin Madison. His research interests include bioinformatics, computer graphics, augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR), and user interface/user experience (UI/UX). He is currently working on RNA sequencing projects at the Morgridge Institute for Research under John Steill and Matthew Bernstein. In the past, he worked at Los Alamos National Laboratory on parameter fitting optimizations for cell signaling models under William Hlavacek and Ryan Suderman. For more information about Alexander, see his [CV], [Google Scholar], or [Github].
