Phyllis Lam

BSc, MBINF

Data Quality Analyst, GEMINI 

My role with the GEMINI team:

I’m currently a data quality analyst where my main responsibility is to ensure data is clean and ready for downstream processing and research.

 

My past experience and accomplishments:

During my master’s, I had the opportunity to do research at a Toronto-based drug discovery company called Cyclica Inc. where I built a pipeline to detect and calculate statistical pathway enrichment based on proteome screening results. Prior to joining GEMINI, I worked at BMO Capital Markets as a technology analyst where I was a lead analyst on several projects like automating reconciliation between trading systems and regulatory reporting.

My educational background:

I received my bachelor of science from the University of Waterloo majoring in biotechnology and economics and my master’s of bioinformatics from the University of Guelph.

 

I feel most inspired when:

I get to collaborate with people who are equally passionate about their work!

A few of my favourite things are:

  • Shopping at farmer’s markets and used bookstores

  • Playing board games with friends

  • Experimenting in the kitchen with a new recipe or trying a new restaurant
