Hi, I’m Diya.

I’m a molecular biologist and data scientist, and currently a member of the data management team in Development Sciences Informatics at Genentech. I lead our data planning team, which facilitates transfers of high-dimensional exploratory data from our partners, striving to ensure that our data is FAIR. I also lead our data management team’s efforts in data sharing, especially in support of publications.

Previously, I held primary appointment as a Postdoctoral Researcher in John Ngai’s lab at UC Berkeley. I was also a Moore-Sloan Data Science Fellow at the Berkeley Institute for Data Science. I studied how olfactory stem cells make neurons (or don’t) in adults.

I mapped my academic career as a visual resume. Aside from its descriptive qualities, this project was a great way to learn more about Google sheets integration with R and ggplot2/grid graphics. The result is below and the code to make your own visual resume is on GitHub.
