Siwei XieSoftware Engineer AncestryMSCB ’16
The solid training in computational biology that I earned at CMU helped me transition from an undergraduate degree in biochemistry to a software engineering job in biotech. My life is no different from that of many other software engineers – coffee, meetings, stackoverflow and coding! Yet a lot of my work involves communicating with computational biologists, understanding their needs and finding solutions for their requirements. Thanks to CMU, I understand our scientists better than other engineers do.
