I am a Professor at the Scripps Research Institute. My lab is equally focused on biomedical discovery and bioinformatics tool development.

I feel like I am always looking for good postdocs and programmers, so if you're interested in open data, crowdsourcing, and/or informatically-driven biomedical discovery, please get in touch!
