Dr Anna Cuomo
Dr Anna Cuomo is a postdoctoral researcher at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research of Medical Research in Joseph Powell’s and Daniel MacArthur’s labs. Previously, she completed postdoctoral training at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in Nicole Soranzo’s group, and obtained her PhD in Statistical Genetics at the University of Cambridge and the European Bioinformatics Institute, under the joint supervision of Oliver Stegle and John Marioni. Her PhD and postdoc work is concerned with the development of integrative statistical models to link DNA variants to single cell expression profiles, to uncover molecular mechanisms that might help unravelling the genotype-phenotype map. As part of this effort, she has contributed to the analysis of datasets from the HipSci (Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells Initiative) project, the HCA (Human Cell Atlas) and the sc-eQTL Gen (single-cell eQTL Gen) consortia. She is currently contributing to the analysis of data from the OneK1K project, where she studies the effect of rare and structural variants on blood single-cell expression profiles from nearly 2,000 Australian individuals.
