I work in bioinformatics, but activism is my hobby. I use Ruby for writing tools for both.

I'm also a computer scientist by training (Virginia Tech Class of 2007), and am fluent in C++ and C.

I'm currently working on a Ph.D. in Cell & Molecular Biology at The University of Texas at Austin. Hook 'em! I graduate in December.

I am most comfortable in UNIX/Linux; I'm a Mac user and an Ubuntu person. In addition to Ruby, C, and C++, I am decent at Python.

Oh, and I'm the director of the SciRuby Project! Check us out. Sciruby.com. I'm currently working on writing NMatrix, a numeric matrix extension for Ruby in C. It should go beta fairly soon, which is very exciting.

comment Forced air system blowing cold air through bedroom vents, hot through the rest
Well, I'm going to check your answer as correct because it's a good one. But the landlord has decided he's not going to renew my lease (for no reason that he's communicated to me), so it looks like it won't be my problem for much longer. Thanks.

I actually did find it to be of use! If I said something rude, I apologize. Could you please put it back?

comment How many vent stacks should a house have?
I believe there is such a valve under the sink. It's not very efficient -- grey water backs up into the dishwasher when the sink gets too full. Looping the dishwasher hose does not help.

comment What could cause an under-sink reverse osmosis filter to have low pressure?
OH! Wow. That explains a lot. Okay, I depressurized it down to below what my bike pump could measure (<10Lbs). Was still hissing, but only a little bit. It looks like there's already flow through the filter faucet. I'll try again in the morning.

Yes. Replaced the membrane along with the filters.
