Short Biography


I have been using Debian on a personal basis since about 2001, shortly after I discovered Linux. In the intervening years I've worked as a sysadmin and developer. I paused my career to study microbiology and I now work in bioinformatics. My current position is Community Engineer for the Common Workflow Language project, a community working on increasing the reproducibility and reusability of scientific workflows through the development of a CLI tool description syntax and a syntax for describing workflows made from those tools.

I have had the tremendous pleasure to work with the Debian-Med packaging team on 30+ packages:

One major goal is to shift of the packaging & QA work being done separately at dozens of academic computing sites across the world into the Debian collaborative framework to reduce needlessly duplicated efforts.
