Judith Cohn is currently a staff scientist at Los Alamos National Laboratory. She received a Ph.D. in Molecular Biology from Cambridge University in 1981 and completed post-doctoral studies at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in San Diego, CA, and the Johnson Space Center in Clear Lake, TX. Following her post-doctoral studies, she spent seven years developing primarily statistical software for scientific and engineering applications in the private sector. During this period she was also an instructor in computer science, mathematics, and statistics. In 1996 she joined the bioinformatics team for the Human Genome Project in Los Alamos. Since 2006, she has been a member of the Information Sciences group in the Computer, Computational and Statistical Sciences Division, where she has designed, developed, and implemented software and databases for high-throughput data analysis in a variety of domain areas, primarily focused on biological problems. She was part of a team that won an R&D 100 award in 2012 for Sequedex, a software application to classify phylogeny and function of metagenomic DNA sequencing samples. Recently she has been putting her skills and experience into a number of machine learning projects. The work presented here in particular is part of a pilot project with the National Cancer Institute under the auspices of the Joint Design of Advanced Computing Solutions for Cancer program.
