I wear many hats. These include: computational scientist, programmer and system administrator. More recently I have been referred to as a BioIT specialist.
I make it easier to answer questions about biological data using computational approaches. My present focus is with Next-generation sequencing technologies. I am making it rapid and efficient to analyse this big and complex data. Previously I focused on data describing the structure of biological assemblies.
I write mainly python code.
I predominantly manage Linux servers in context of configuration, security, web services and data management. I also get to play around in high performance computing environments.
In my spare time I will be either fishing, keeping my dogs active or renovating our 60 year old house.
