Software developer and bioinformatician. I know what kinase is and that hibernate can refer to two different things! In other words, Biology and Computing do make sense! ..."sometimes". My working experience revolves around bioinformatics application design and development, large scale data management and analysis, data standardization, modeling and visualisation, R/Bioconductor, statistical data mining and machine learning. Invested in building better solutions for data interpretation and knowledge acquisition in modern biology.
