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.
