I am currently a postdoctoral fellow in the Statistics Department at Stanford University. My research interests revolve around bioinformatics and computational biology, with emphasis on open-source tools and the R language in particular.

I am also the lead developer of an R/Bioconductor package for data management and analysis of high-throughput amplicon-based DNA sequencing projects. The package is called phyloseq, and it is developed openly on GitHub, with official development and stable releases of phyloseq available from Bioconductor.

My background is in chemical engineering, environmental engineering, bioinformatics, and most recently, statistics and R development.
