I’m currently a fifth year PhD candidate studying bioinformatics and computational biology at Oregon Health & Science University My research interests are in understanding the structure of bacteria co-occur in the human microbiome using computational methods and how best to use this knowledge to learn about how these bacteria impact our health.
I will generally blog about code, data, and the (human) microbiome intended to be advice and notes for my previous self in order to help my future self. I hope you’re able to takeaway something from it as well.
In my free time, I like to fold origami, contribute to open-source projects, volunteer locally, and learn foreign and programming languages.
