Kelly Street is an Assistant Professor of Population and Public Health Sciences in the Division of Biostatistics at the Keck School of Medicine of USC. His research interests include the development and evaluation of computational methods for high-dimensional genomic data. Much of his work has focused on applications in single-cell RNA sequencing, particularly for the analysis of continuous differentiation trajectories. He also has experience working with data on chromatin structure (ATAC-seq), DNA methylation (WGBS), mass cytometry (CyTOF, IMC), and immune repertoire (TCR-seq). He is currently interested in multi-omic integration, the problem of combining information from different genomic assays to reveal novel relationships between biological systems.
