Welcome to my page!

I’m Kevin T. Chang, researcher and creator of the tool Aminode: Evolutionary Analysis. I graduated from Rice University with research honors in 2018, achieving a Bachelor of Arts in Cognitive Science with honors, specializing in Neuroscience along with extensive training in Evolutionary Biology and Ecology.

I work in the Sardiello Lab at the Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute, an initiative between Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children’s Hospital. At the lab, I independently study proteomics and the evolutionary analysis of the human genome, which lead to the creation of the web tool Aminode. This work was published in Scientific Reports. I also assist with medical genetics research on Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis, specifically NCL8.

Previously, I worked with NASA, specifically the Human Systems Integration Division. While there, I worked primarily on testing and evaluating electroencephalography (EEG) devices for astronautic use.

Aside from research, I also proudly served as an academic fellow for Lovett College, head fellow for Rice University, and an EMT-B for Rice EMS.
