I did my undergrad at UC Berkeley, spent some time programming for The Arabidopsis Information Resource in Palo Alto, then did a PhD at Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Massachusetts. I've also been a guest at Brown University in Providence, RI and a postdoc at the University of Utah.
I enjoy playing Go (the game, not the programming language) and hiking in my spare time.
