I'm a grad student in the Genomics & Computational Biology program at the University of Pennsylvania.

A probabilistic functional programming language

As biological data sets get bigger, it becomes more important to find automated ways to find patterns in the data.  Machine learning and probabilistic models are often useful.

I've made some attempts at implementing a probabilistic programming language, in hopes of making it simpler to develop new probabilistic models.

Other interests

I play some piano and violin, especially violin/fiddle for English and Scottish country dancing.

In my spare time, I enjoy making paper airplanes. (photo courtesy Jay J. P. Scott)
