Research Background Publications Contact


Welcome to my website. My name is Melanie Schirmer and I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard working in the groups of Ramnik Xavier and Curtis Huttenhower.

I completed my PhD in October 2014 in the Water Research Group at the University of Glasgow where I worked on Algorithms for Viral Haplotype Reconstruction and Bacterial Metagenomics: Resolving Fine-Scale Variation in Next Generation Sequencing Data. My project was supervised by Chris Quince and Bill Sloan and sponsored by Unilever R&D Port Sunlight.
