My name is Quang Nguyen and I am currently a graduate student in the Quantitative Biomedical Science program at Dartmouth College.

I am a computational biologist, focusing on developing statistical and bioinformatic tools to investigate features of the infant gut microbiome, and how it relates to early life exposures and health outcomes. I am interested more broadly in statistical methods for high-dimensional data.

Check out my blog Limit Testing where I write about statistics and other fun things! You can find me on Github, LinkedIn, Google Scholar and Twitter.
