I'm a programmer, mostly working in bioinformatics. [source code on GitHub] [CV]

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

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.

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