About

Jack headshotHi! I’m Jack O’Brien and I’m currently an assistant professor of mathematics at Bowdoin College.  My research specialty is in statistical genetics and I am particularly interested in the problems that occur in metagenomic or multigenomic data. Moving from my native Maine, I got my undergraduate degree in mathematics, under the supervision of Erica Flapan.  I received my doctorate in Biomathematics at UCLA under the joint supervision of Marc Suchard and Zhen-Su She.  While there I worked closely with Vladimir Minin and Alex Alekseyenko.  I did a post-doc in statistical genetics at the Statistics Department of the University of Bristol with Peter Green, Daniel Falush and Xavier Didelot.  I then worked as a senior statistician at the Centre for Genomics and Global Health, under Dominic Kwiatkowski, working closely with Zam Iqbal, Jason Wendler and Lucas Amenga-Etego.  Since arriving at Bowdoin, I have been working with Nick Record (among others) at Bigelow Laboratory to perform multi-scale metagenomic sampling of the Gulf of Maine.
