About Me – Kathryn (Kate) Weaver

Research Interests and Background

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Cell, Molecular, Developmental Biology, and Biophysics (CMDB) program at Johns Hopkins University, advised by Dr. Rajiv McCoy. My research develops and applies computational models to better understand genome function and evolution. My current research interests use machine learning approaches

  • to model gene regulation and predict gene expression across hematopoietic cell types
  • to uncover molecular mechanisms contributing to human infertility
  • to leverage patterns shared across related datasets to fill in missing data

I obtained my B.S. in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology and my B.S. in Mathematics from Bethel University (Mishawaka, IN).

Life and Hobbies

My amazing dog Gibbs loves walks, fetch, & helping code. I really enjoy his long walks, all types of needlework projects, music, and reading books.
