My name is Meng Xiao (with a space -- both words are part of my first name). I'm a graduate student in the Harvard Biophysics PhD program working in the lab of Eliezer Van Allen at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, where we apply genomic approaches to understanding cancer. My projects focus on single-cell datasets from advanced prostate and kidney cancers, structural variants in testicular germ cell tumors, and relationships between the inherited and somatic genomes. Before grad school, I was a software engineer at Optimizely. Professionally, I'm a big fan of resampling based methods and python. Unprofessionally, I enjoy mountains, especially out west, fresh bread, and Trident Booksellers & Cafe.
If you have ideas for collaborations, have questions about our work, or want to get a sense of what grad school in the Boston area is like, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

- @alexanderchee @alexanderchee Is "After Peter" online anywhere else? I read it recently and found it maddening and beautiful and wanted to share to encourage friends to read the book, but the t.co/B1YXvD1zxM link does not deliver what it promises in more than one way.
- Help us spread the message that the Harvard Coalition for Black Lives have crafted for systematic social justice & reform at our institution. We need your help in ensuring our voices are heard by the public, the administration, & the President Larry Bacow. #matchmeharvard t.co/t4fpWNSlnD
