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 using single-cell approaches to study therapy resistance in 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 fan of resampling based methods and python. Unprofessionally, I enjoy mountains, especially out west, fresh bread, and Trident bookstore.

If you are interesting in collaborating, have questions about our work, or want to get a sense of what grad school is like, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
