Elizabeth Anderson

I am currently a PhD candidate in the Quantitative Biomedical Sciences program at Dartmouth in the lab of Dr. Caitlin Howe, studying maternal cardiometabolic health and placental structure, function, and adaptation. My undergrad degree was from Brigham Young University (Provo) in Bioinformatics, and I got a double minor in Computer Science and Business Management. My research work prior to Dartmouth involved a summer internship with the Utah Public Health Laboratory, research work for the Piccolo and Farrell labs at BYU, and a summer internship at Harvard University in the SIBMI program (Summer Institute in Biomedical Informatics). Between graduating and starting at Dartmouth, I worked as a software developer for Decisely, a start-up aimed at improving healthcare insurance options. The many research projects I was able to be involved in, including my work at Decisely, helped me gain an appreciation for and a commitment to computational work in the biomedical realm. In my spare time, I enjoy playing the piano and guitar, swimming, trying new recipes, and spending time with friends and family.
