I am Bren Professor of Computational Biology at Caltech. The purpose of this site is to supplement my academic website with updates on my research and teaching activities, along with reviews and commentary on current topics in computational biology.

I ask that all submitted comments include a valid email address in the appropriate box (addresses can be anonymized, e.g. iamnotme@google.com but must work so that I can respond directly to the commenter if needed). I reserve the right to reject comments if they contain inappropriate content.

“Socrates:…neither poetry nor prose, spoken or written, is of any great value, if, like the compositions of the rhapsodes, they are only recited in order to be believed, and not with any view to criticism or instruction”

Plato’s Phaedrus.

=== Site Notes ===

The WordPress theme I use is Tarski. I selected it based on its use by Terence Tao for his What’s new blog. The header image is a photograph I took of the sculpture Dansleikur by Icelandic sculptor Þorbjörg Pálsdóttir.
