About Dr. Kronenberg:
Senior Computational Biologist, Phase Genomics
Zev earned his M.S. at the University of Idaho under the tutelage of Dr. Holly Wichman. After leaving the University of Idaho, Zev studied computational biology and human genetics at the University of Utah for five years, and completed a two-year fellowship with Dr. Evan Eichler at the University of Washington. Six months ago Zev joined Phase Genomics (https://phasegenomics.com/ ), a company, spun out of the department of Genome Sciences at the University of Washington. Phase Genomics is the industry leader in Hi-C genome scaffolding and Metagenomic deconvolution. As an employee of a small company, Zev has several roles including, sales, managing collaborations, and algorithmic development. Zev enjoys working at Phase Genomics because his roles emulate an academic position. Please join Zev for an open-ended discussion about career paths. Zev will share his recent experiences about leaving academia, good and bad job interviews, choosing between jobs, and managing stress during life transitions.
