From Computational Cell Biology
Dr. Raquell Holmes is an Assistant Research Professor, trained as a cell biologist, who has spent over ten years supporting scientists to take advantage of computing and computational resources for their teaching and research. She works at the Center for Cell Analysis and Modeling, home to the Virtual Cell, a publicly available Web-based application used to study cellular dynamics. Through workshops and publications, she introduces numerical modeling and modeling frameworks to experimentalists and students. She has simultaneously trained in using improvisational theater and performance to build collaborative learning environments with youth and adults.
