I am a full stack developer supporting development of Nextstrain. Previously, I was a software engineer on the Microsoft cloud security team building automation tools for security analysts. Other prior involvements include building, a virus discovery platform based on public data within the Sequence Read Archive, and supporting cancer research under Dr. Lei Zhou.

I graduated from the University of Florida with a bachelor’s in computer science and statistics.
