Hello, world.

I am a staff scientist in the Huttenhower Lab at the Harvard Chan School of Public Health. I 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.
