I am an Associate Professor of Biology at William and & Mary. My teaching and research are highly interdisciplinary in nature, using techniques and concepts from mathematics, statistics, biology, and computational sciences. Specifically, I teach courses in biostatistics and quantitative biology, and have performed research in quantitative ecology, computational cell biology, and computational neuroscience.
I am co-PI and Director of Cyberinfrastructure for the QUBES virtual center (Quantitative Undergraduate Biology Education and Synthesis). This work has ignited an interest and passion in open source software development, quantitative biology education, and development of education gateways.
