Nathanael Fillmore


From October, 2016, I will be a postdoc with Giovanni Parmigiani and Nikhil Munshi at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. I completed my Ph.D. in Computer Sciences in December, 2015, and followed by a short transitional postdoc in UW-Madison's Biostatistics and Medical Informatics department, advised by Colin Dewey. Previously I studied Latin, Greek, Sanskrit, and analytical philosophy at Carleton College and the American Institute of Indian Studies. From 2011 to 2014, I was supported by a Computation and Informatics in Biology and Medicine (CIBM) predoctoral traineeship. CV.
