I am a biologist, statistics and computing enthusiast, and HPC troublemaker currently working as a research scientist, and a resident biologist at LSU in the quantitative and computational biology group at CCT. My work here is focussed on building data-driven, across discipline, integrative research programs. My personal research focuses on using modern data-focussed and computational approaches to answering questions in biology related to biodiversity and genetic variation.

Software tools, databases, and pipelines I have contributed to or worked on.
A software pipeline implemented to conduct tests of model fit using posterior predictive testing, based on both data- and inference-based test statistics in phylogenetics. This new implementation makes a large spectrum of models available for use through a user-friendly and flexible interface.
RevBayes is a software package designed to conduct Bayesian phylogenetic inference using probabilistic graphical models and an interpreted language.
Phyloboost is a python pipeline that allows the reconstruction, augmentation and visualizaton of the similarity-cluster-based tree sets constructed from an input dataset of sequences.
OpenTree of Life
The Open Tree of Life is an online phylogenetic tree of life, funded by the National Science Foundation. The first draft, including 2.3 million species, was released in September 2015. The Interactive graph allows the user to zoom in to taxonomic classifications, phylogenetic trees, and information about a node.
