Celeste is now an Associate Computational Biologist at the Broad Institute.
Celeste Nobrega is an undergraduate student in the class of 2022 at Wheaton College. She is working towards a degree in Bioinformatics, and is excited about her coursework including genomics, biology, ecology, statistics, and computer science. Past research experiences in 2020 include studying the effects of chronic cortisol exposure in zebrafish embryos where she focused my project on the response in gene expression to different cortisol treatments and collection times. In 2019, she worked on a software development and research team for a webtool called Lexos.
Celeste is excited about the learning opportunities found at the intersection of bioinformatics and oceanography in Dr. Alexander’s lab. She is looking forward to gaining further experience in large scale genomic data and the applications of bioinformatic methods in oceanographic studies.
