I am Chinmay Shukla, a graduate student in the Biological and Biomedical Sciences program at Harvard University. For my thesis project, I am dissecting and characterizing sequence elements responsible for different functions of long non coding RNAs (lncRNAs) under the direction of Dr. Rafael Irizarry. Outside lab, I am passionate about photography, reading non-fiction, data science and science communication. This page provides information on my research projects along with my interests. I frequently blog my thoughts about graduate school and data science at Outside Two Standard Deviations.
