Hello, world.

I am a research scientist in the Huttenhower Lab at the Harvard Chan School of Public Health. We develop and apply computational methods to study microbial communities, with an emphasis on the human microbiome.

I completed my Bioinformatics Ph.D. in the Xia Lab at Boston University in 2011, where my work involved integrating 3D structure data in the study of protein evolution and host-virus protein-protein interaction.

I am passionate about science education and scientific communications skills, such as information graphic design. In my free time I enjoy science fiction, tabletop games, humor, and organizing.
