Dr. Kiehl started his career with an M.S. in Computer Science from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. After 10 years at GE Global Research, in their Computational Intelligence Lab, Tom returned to RPI full time to pursue a Ph.D. in Multidisciplinary Science with a focus on systems biology and biotechnology. This was followed by a postdoc at Albany Medical College in Immunology. A Computing Innovation Fellowship, awarded by the Computing Research Association, allowed Tom to spend two years at the SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering where he began work in computational neuroscience and RNA-seq analysis. At NSCI Dr. Kiehl facilitates the integration of data analysis with bench work. Tom is also pursuing applications of high-throughput in-vitro electrophysiological platforms for the study of development, spinal cord injury and neurological disease mechanisms.
