Philip first joined the lab in fall 2019 prior to starting his PhD studies at UNC Charlotte in Bioinformatics. During those first few months, he led our testing efforts for the IGB 9.1.0 release. He also made multiple contributions to the IGB App Store.
In summer 2020, he rejoined the lab full-time as a rotation student. Since re-joining the group, he played a key role in further developing the IGB Genome Dashboard.
Philip received his undergraduate degree in Biology at UNC Charlotte in 2019 with a minor in Bioinformatics. In addition to his extensive domain knowledge in biology, Philip brings a deep interest in all aspects of computer science, from algorithms to user interface design.
