Ashley Lynn Kiemen, PhD


Assistant Professor


Johns Hopkins

Institute for Nanobiotechnology


Dr. Kiemen, PhD is an assistant professor in the computational division of the Johns Hopkins Department of Pathology. Her main research interest is understanding microanatomical invasion patterns of pancreatic cancer by using a unique 3D reconstruction technology of serial histological sections. She integrates deep learning tissue labelling techniques with MRI images, DNA sequencing, immunohistochemistry, spatial transcriptomics, and immunofluorescence to characterize pancreatic cancer tissues. She also helped to map the microanatomy of a diabetic pancreas, skin, heart, fallopian tubes, liver, and lungs.

She earned her BS in chemical engineering from the University of Michigan in 2016, her MS in philosophy from the London School of Economics and Political Science in 2017, and her PhD in chemical & biomolecular engineering from Johns Hopkins University in 2021.
