A frustrated grad student with zero connection to bioethics
The Mark Zuckerberg of Open Source Genetics
My best colleague, […] - the guy who knows everything
Currently a long-term research fellow at the Center for Research & Interdisciplinarity in Paris (Université de Paris, INSERM U1284) – leading the Peer-Produced Research Lab, working on how to enable the co-creation citizen science projects. In a former life a biologist-turned-bioinformatician-turned-citizen-scientist who did a Master’s degree in Ecology & Evolution and ended up doing a bioinformatics PhD on how symbiotic relationships influence genomic evolution.
Avid fan of Open (Source|Access|Science|Culture|.*). Convinced that basically everything is better if you add open in front of it. Thus co-founded openSNP – a crowdsourced/citizen science open data project that puts personal genetics data into the public domain – in 2011. Also the Director of Research for Open Humans – working on citizen science and self-research around personal data.
Traveling a lot and liking it. Interested in data driven self-improvement and Do It Yourself Biology. Speaks Python, R & Ruby (on Rails) and even a bit of Perl.
