Bio: Dr. Long received her Ph.D. in animal science (2011) and a master’s degree in statistics (2009), both from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her thesis work centered around high-dimensional genetic marker data used for predicting genetic values of individuals. She published 15 peer-reviewed journal articles during her Ph.D. study, by investigating and developing a variety of statistical modeling methods to enhance the accuracy of genome-enabled prediction of quantitative traits. She then pursued a three-year postdoctoral training at Duke University School of Medicine, where she continued working on statistical methodology, with a focus on identifying causal variants using both sequencing data and array data. Before joining ICER in the summer of 2017, she was a statistical geneticist at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill School of Pharmacy and worked on Drug-Induced Liver Injury Network, an NIDDK-funded large-scale genetic analysis consortium. Currently at ICER, Dr. Long commits 30% of her time in collaborating with MSU researchers, in addition to routine helpdesk tasks and training activities towards general HPCC users.
