I am currently a 1st year graduate student in the Biomolecular Engineering and Bioinformatics Masters of Science program here at the University of California at Santa Cruz.
My interests primarily include applications of machine learning and data mining techniques to problems pertaining to the fields of bioinformatics/computational-biology/genomics. These include but are not limited to: Dimensionality reduction, clustering methods, modeling and simulation techniques, edge-detection and data-wearhousing.
I am particularly interesting in investigating methods to improve the processes of next-gen sequence alignment data through the use of information stored within a pedigree or cohort of consanguineous individuals to modify a reference sequence.
I am also interested in learning further about how to optimally use distributed systems to amplify speed of machine learning computations and sequence alignment.

So I heard people like putting cats on their webpages...
Here's a link to my Corning Photos.
