I am a graduate student and software developer researching statistical genomics, image analysis, and infectious disease epidemilolgy. I have a B.S. in biochemistry from the State University of New York at Geneseo with a specialization in computational biology and data analysis. I am a data enthusiast, and enjoy working on interesting statistical and computational problems in the field of biology.

My current research includes infectious disease epidemiology, applications of computer vision in home automation and domain awareness, and the analysis of next-generation genomics data. Some prior projects include a metapopulation network to simulate disease propagation, the effects of malaria-resistant transgenic mosquitoes on sickle-cell heterozygous advantage, and the localization of flourescent chromosomes in extremely polyploid bacteria.

On my off days I tinker with data, cook, and work on any number of digital electronics projects. On rainy days I stay in and read. I'm always interested in trying new things, so if you have an adventure to share, send me an email. If you're curious about my research, check out my blog. If you are a billionare looking for a strapping young researcher to add to a well-compensated research group, then add my resume to the stack.
