Personal profile


Dr. Herring is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Western Australia (UWA) and The Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research, where they work as a bioinformatician in Prof. Ryan Lister's laboratory. Their research program is focused on gaining a comprehensive understanding of the gene regulatory landscape and its role in cell development and identity, especially within the context of the developing prefrontal cortex. Dr. Herring has a particular emphasis on the development of analytical tools for mapping dynamic changes in cell states.

Dr. Herring is a former United States Marine who obtained a Bachelor of Science degree with a focus in Physics from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte before completing their Ph.D. under the guidance of Prof. Ken Lau at Vanderbilt University in 2018. After completing their doctoral studies, Dr. Herring joined Prof. Ryan Lister's lab at The Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research and UWA as a postdoctoral fellow. Their recent work has been centered around characterizing the gene regulatory landscape of the human prefrontal cortex from gestation to adulthood, employing cutting-edge single-cell resolution techniques. This research has provided valuable insights into human brain development and its potential implications for brain-related disorders.
