Steve Moss

I am a Dad to two beautiful children, and besotted husband. I am passionate about science, research, computing, and all things geeky! I am the founder of pyOpenSci and Raspberry Pscience; supporter of Open Access, Open Data, Open Hardware, Open Science, and Open Source; and programmer (primarily) in Python, Ruby, Perl, R, Go, and C. I am also very excited about Julia, and am a member of the BioJulia organisation.

I undertook a PhD in Bioinformatics at the University of Hull as part of the EvoHull (@EvoHull) group where I focused on the development of bioinformatics tools for the analyses of evolutionary genomic data. I enjoy data munging, hacking (coding), high performance computing, and system administration. I believe in a free and open Internet and am an advocate of those rights. I am most comfortable at the UNIX command line and feel particularly at home when utilising my computational skills in a scientific and research environment, whilst collaborating within a multidisciplinary team. I believe in using the power of technology to make the world a better place.

My interests cover a wide range of topics including, but not limited to; anthropology, algorithms, archaeology, artificial intelligence, bioinformatics, biology, cultural and social evolution, the comparative method, computational biology, computer science, data science, genomics, high performance computing, machine learning, natural history, and scientific computing.
