I am a computational biophysics graduate student at Washington University in St. Louis, where I do science, write code, and manage computers.
Sometimes I write about those things, and sometimes I write about other things as well. My research is primarily focussed on questions relating to structural disorder in proteins, but I have broad interests ranging from machine learning to evolutionary theory. My work can generally be thought of as trying to extract predictive power from extremely high dimensional data. I like the idea of applying ideas and approaches from one area to explore, describe, and explain phenomena observed in another.
I'm also interested in determining the best way to explain and present things, both through language and through visual representation, which is one of the motivations for this blog.
I had an old blog at this URL which this one replaces. I've transferred a few of those original posts over, but many of them didn't seem worth moving.
