Jamie R. Nuñez is a data scientist at PNNL. She is currently pursuing a PhD under the supervision of Ryan Renslow in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Washington. Her work encompasses the full metabolomics pipeline (from experimental methods to interpretation of final results), but has primarily focused on scoring for the reporting of identification results using the multi-attribute matching engine (MAME) as well as methods to improve confidence.
