I'm a founding engineer for AWS HealthOmics, a new petabyte-scale storage and analysis platform for bioinformatics researchers and clinicians. We've enjoyed (and continue to enjoy) a nearly 2-year journey to take a once-ambitious idea at the intersection bioinformatics and the cloud, and go from 0 lines of code to General Availability.
I'm the first author of an interactive, adaptive textbook for CSE 6R, a new fully-online introductory computer science course that is offered at campuses across the University of California. The text embraces an active-learning approach that challenges students to think critically and diagnose their own learning breakdowns.
