Bio

I am a Science Informatician at CyVerse (University of Arizona), a life sciences cyberinfrastructure funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). At CyVerse, I scientifically interact with biologists, bioinformaticians, programming teams and other members of CyVerse team as well as coordinate development cross projects, and facilitate integration and cross-communication.

Research Areas:
Applied Plant Biology, Computational Biology, Genomics, Molecular Biology
