Lee Zamparo, M.Sc.

Dept. Computer Science & Donnelly CCBR

I'm a PhD student in the Computational Biology group in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Toronto. My advisor is Zhaolei Zhang. From 2005 until 2008, I studied at Concordia University, earning an M. Sc. in computer science. My advisor there was Gregory Butler. Prior to that, I earned an undergraduate degree also at University of Toronto, graduating with an Honors B. Sc. in 2004 (Specialist in Computer Science, Statistics option).

My primary research interest is efficient algorithms for analyzing high-content screening data. In particular, I work on new machine learning models to do phenotype based classification or clustering of cell images. Where possible, I prefer models that maintain biological interpretability. More generally, I'm interested in unsupervised machine learning algorithms, and open source scientific computing in python or R.

I keep a research blog, it's located here.
