About me

I am a computational biologist and software developer with a strong interest in systems biology and mathematical modeling. I am also passionate about developing open source software that is of use to the scientific community.




GAMBIT (Genomic Approximation Method for Bacterial Identification and Tracking) is a software tool for rapid taxonomic identification of microbial pathogens from WGS data. Developed in collaboration with the Nevada State Public Health Lab, the Alameda County Public Health Lab, and the David Hess lab at Santa Clara University.
