Professionally, I am a bioinformatics application developer that is passionate about writing quality software to improve science and facilitate discovery. My background is in biology with a focus on plants. I am trained as a plant geneticist and most of my work centers around developing novel computational methods for understanding patterns of genome evolution. I am currently employed as a Research Associate at the Beaty Biodiversity Research Centre and Department of Botany at UBC. If you would like to discuss one of my projects or a collaboration, please send me message.
When I am not working I enjoy cycling, hiking, rock climbing and reading just about anything.
