I am a plant geneticist with particular interests in polyploidy, population genetics, and the development of novel algorithms and software for the analysis of molecular markers. I use genomics to address applied questions in agriculture and ecology, with the ultimate goal of sustainability and the preservation of biodiversity. I have a strong background in computer programming, and seek to bridge the gap between applied biology and bioinformatics, both by creating software that is easy for biologists to use, and by helping biologists to learn the fundamentals of programming.
