I am a bioinformatician at the University of New South Wales, where I use plain old ruby objects. In part of my spare time, I work on fun projects.

Fun projects I have worked on are:

  • The Weather in London: recognising the names of Wikipedia titles in a body of text)
  • Get to Philosophy: if you click on the first link of an article in Wikipedia, until recently you would end up at the one on Philosophy. I was trying to analyse why)
  • Chaser: a mutation tester (as in unit testing, not as in biology) for ruby
  • Zombie-chaser: mutation testing ... with zombies!
