Department of Microbiology & Immunology

Background

Why do I do it?

  • Started as a postdoc in Jo Handelsman's lab
  • I have the ability to code and translate that ability to biologists - if we can develop the tools then surely others will benefit
  • I don't like how others benchmark/validate methods
  • My lab needs software to analyze data and the tools are either poorly developed/tested or not available
