Shannon Hateley is a computational biologist interested in using genomics methods to understand organismal response to climate change. Prior to coming to Carnegie, she was a senior staff scientist at AncestryDNA. Dr. Hateley obtained her Ph.D. in Molecular and Cell Biology from University of California, Berkeley, with a designated emphasis in Computational and Genomics Biology. During her studies, she worked both at lab bench and computationally on gene expression, building tools for RNA transcript characterization, and detecting disease-associated genetic variants. Dr. Hateley also holds a B.A. from St. John’s College where she studied the Great Books. She spends her free time on dance, tinkering, and climate organizing.
