Mike received his B.S. in Biological Sciences from Marshall University and a PhD in Evolution, Ecology, and Organismal Biology from The Ohio State University. In his role with CAPS, Mike provides opportunities for consultation, collaboration, and training to help support researchers across campus in the areas of genomics, bioinformatics, computation, and big data analyses. Prior to joining CAPS, Mike was a grad student (Fuerst Lab) and post-doc (Gibbs Lab) in EEOB where he used population genetic approaches to address a variety of questions in evolution, ecology, and conservation biology. He subsequently held positions with the Genomics Shared Resource in the OSU Comprehensive Cancer Center-James where he provided NGS/Illumina sequencing services and support to OSU researchers, and also a research position with the OSU College of Pharmacy where he performed bioinformatic analyses for RNAseq, miRNA, and genome-wide association studies (GWAS) of various cancers.
