I'm currently working in the lab of Eric Allen
at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, developing computational tools for the
assembly, annotation, and analysis of microbial genomes and metagenomes.
I also provide scientific liaison and training for wet-lab experimental
biologists seeking to integrate genomic data and computational software
tools into their research. My special interest is in the application
of machine learning tools to predict protein function, subcellular localization, and evolutionary history.
My background includes academic lab work in cell and molecular biology, as well as industrial experience developing microarray toolkits, clinical diagnostic test kits, and injectable pharmaceutical products.
Over the past several years, I've transitioned out of wet-lab biochemistry and pharmaceutical product development into full-time computer programming and bioinformatics, which I really enjoy.
