Dr. Mike Sivley


I work on the processing and analysis of genetic and phenotypic data from biobanks linked with health records.

My expertise is in the integration of large genetic and protein structural biology datasets for the analysis of genetic variation within its structural and functional context. I also have experience with the analysis of data from biobanks linked to electronic medical records.

I recently graduated with my PhD in Biomedical Informatics from Vanderbilt University, where I developed an efficient pipeline for mapping genetic variation into protein structures. This work formed the foundation of the Vanderbilt Personalized Structural Biology Program, which aims to improve patient diagnosis and treatment by considering the structural consequences of variation in an individual genome.

Outside of work I enjoy travelling, board games, and (whenever possible) a good game of schleuderball.
