Kimiko earned her PhD in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology with an NIH Big Data to Knowledge Certificate from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2020. Under the mentorship of Henrik Dohlman and Timothy Elston, her research identified the origin and targets of feedback loops regulating yeast MAPK phosphorylation in response to osmotic stress by integrating machine learning, ODE systems modeling, and experimental techniques. Prior to her doctoral work, Kimiko earned her BS in Molecular and Cellular Biology from Johns Hopkins University in 2015. During that time, her research endeavors investigated a variety of signaling mechanisms in yeast, Arabidopsis, and mice, inspiring her to understand signaling at a systems-level.
