I am a doctoral researcher @UniOfHull, devoted Dad to two beautiful children, and husband to @KelseyMoss_ :D I am passionate about science, computing, and all things geeky! I am founder of @pyOpenSci, supporter of Open Access, Open Data, Open Hardware, Open Science, and Open Source, and programmer in Python, Perl, R, and C.
I work within the @EvoHull lab under the supervision of @davelunt and @domino_joyce. I develop in silico techniques to perform large-scale comparisons of whole-genomes in order to elucidate the evolutionary processes that have shaped their architecture. I investigate the forces driving the evolution of genomes and those genomic changes which underlie organismal adaptations. This primarily involves the investigation of introns, repeats, and duplications, within a phylogenetic comparative framework. I have also collaborated on projects to model the parameters of ecological systems using computational methods.
From January 2014 I will be working in the Foret Lab at the Australian National University on the genomics and conservation of coral reef ecosystems, particularly the Great Barrier Reef. I will be part of the Sea-quence Project an initiative of the Reef Future Genomics Consortium.
My research and general interests cover a wide range of topics including, but not limited to anthropology, archaeology, bioinformatics, biology, cultural and social evolution, comparative genomics, computational biology, data science, evolutionary computation, genomics, machine learning, molecular evolution, natural history, next-generation sequencing, phylogenomics, and scientific computing.
