I work on the Galaxy Project for Johns Hopkins University, where I organize meetings and courses, prepare training materials, and improve Galaxy's documentation wiki, and web presence. I'm also hoping to touch the (Python!) code.
Prior to working on Galaxy I ran the GMOD Help Desk from 2007-2010, where I did similar work. I am still involved in the GMOD community as a representative of Galaxy. Since 2013 I telecommute from the Toomey Lab in the Department of Geological Sciences at the University of Oregon. From 2007 through 2012 I telecommuted from the Phillips Lab in the Center for Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (CEEB), also at Oregon.

My background is in computer science. I have been working in biological databases since 2000.
Prior to working on Galaxy, and for NESCent and GMOD before that, I worked as the database manager at the European Renal Genome project (EuReGene), as a member of the Edinburgh Mouse Atlas Project (EMAP). This project studied kidney development and disease. My work focused on gene expression patterns, and anatomy ontologies.
My pre-bioinformatics career included
- 4 years at an artificial intelligence lab at the University of Oregon,
- 6 years at database management system vendors,
- 2 years as a database administrator at General Mills,
- Temporary positions (6 to 12 months) working on
- teaching database courses at the University of Oregon
- a data warehouse for inventory control in semiconductor manufacturing (HP),
- a test harness for a network controller OS (IBM), and
- query tools for credit unions (EDS)
- A master's degree in Computer Science from the University of Minnesota. My research focused on transaction management in federated databases,
- A bachelor's degree in Computer Science from Iowa State University.
