I am a computational biologist and software engineer at Counsyl.

Previously, I was a postdoc in Adam Siepel's lab at Cornell, where I worked on computational methods at the intersection of phylogenetics and population genetics.

In 2010, I finished my Ph.D. in Computer Science at MIT. My Ph.D. advisor was Manolis Kellis and I was a part of the Compbio lab. During my Ph.D., I worked on comparative genomics and phylogenomic algorithms for accurately reconstructing gene trees.

I have a M.S. in Computer Science from MIT, and a B.S. in Math and Computer Science from the University of Minnesota [UofM page].

Software

I maintain several open source software projects related (some more than others) to my research. My development interests are in phylogenetic software (DLCoal, SPIMAP, SPIDIR), scientific visualization (SUMMON), and note-taking for research settings (KeepNote).
