I'm Daniel, a bioinformatics scientist with interests in DNA, genes, genomes, and software. My current role focuses on microbial and human forensics. My prior experience covers a broad range of genomics research: developing methods and software for variant discovery; assembling, annotating, and profiling the genome of a model insect species; and developing methods and software to annotate genomes and investigate genome composition and organization. I am committed to open, transparent, and reproducible research, and to responsible research software engineering. I also enjoy mentoring and teaching.
