I am a novice bioinformatician at Seven Bridges Genomics where I am learning about genomics and using my knowledge of data processing to think of new ways to handle the torrent of genomic data that is flooding out of laboratories around the world.
My past training has included electrical engineering and neuroscience. I am interested in both biology and computation. I have done research in adaptive filtering, bat flight behavior/echolocation, cortical processing, neural prosthetics and working memory.
Descriptions of my research, my publications and some writings related to science and engineering are available on this website. In addition, you can find me on
- Assorted Experience (a blog on coding, debugging and life in general)
- It’s a Simulation (Extra! Extra! Scientist writes science fiction)
- Spoiler alert! (a place where I write game, movie and book reviews)
Why I blog
- Giving back – I learn a lot of things by reading other people’s blogs and articles
- Consolidating learning – while researching at work or debugging code, I learn many new things. I find that writing about it helps me organize my knowledge and the blog starts to serve as a reference for me
- Learning – when writing an article I often have to think deeper and research further about topics. This is a good motivation for learning further
- Writing practice – I love writing, and the only way to become a better writer is to write more
If you would like to ask me questions about my research or discuss a research idea, I would love to hear from you, so drop me a line:
