About Me

I live and play in the city of San Francisco. Love artsy/off-kilter girls, and have been seen  taking tumbles on my bike around town after a beer or two.


At the moment I’m playing with sequencing software. Mostly between, alignment and annotation; mostly with C++ and C#. I like Xamarin, think ML is promising, and prefer high-coverage data.

Over the years I’ve been lucky enough to be involved with companies like Nebula, HealthTap, and Novartis. My research career began in the Misono lab modeling membrane-bound receptors using X-ray crystallography, giving me a taste for in silico methods. Meanwhile I spent over two years at Novartis focused on characterizing liposome based nanostructures.

I enjoy discovering budding musicians and am a firm believer that discordant songs are more worthwhile than upbeat jingles. During my last visit to India the ferry I was on crashed into another ferry, but it was still a fun trip.
