I work on bioinformatics and software, statistical genetics, genomic epidemiology, GPU programming, and mathematical modelling – often with emphasis respiratory bacterial pathogens and the Streptococcus genus. For more detail on my work and interests, please see my research and software pages. You can also see some of my recent talks. I occasionally update a blog with technical questions and thoughts about programming and science.
