Kevin Bradley

Education

  • BS in Recombinant Genetics and Computer Science. Western Kentucky University (2000)

Role at the Foundation

  • Software Engineering. As a cutting-edge research organization, the FfAME requires custom software that can perform duties such as unique primer creation, sequence analysis, and analysis of large amounts of biological data. I am in charge of creating this software, as well as maintaining a large-scale database to house both internally and externally created data that is integral to our research.
  • Data Analysis. Working with the scientists at FfAME, I assist in analyzing data using custom-made and 3rd-party tools. This includes such data as high-throughput sequencing, protein heterogeneity, and pathogen strain relatedness.
  • IT Management. Serving as the Foundation's IT manager, I am responsible for the setup and maintenance of the Foundation.s servers, as well as a 16-node computer cluster. I am also tasked with assisting FfAME employees with personal workstation setup, software installation, and troubleshooting any computer-related issues.
