I am a Microbiome scientist, that is, I use my skills in molecular biology, and bioinformatics, to investigate the microbial ecology of a wide variety of ecological and host systems (e.g. plant, animal, human) , and their interactions with one another (e.g. holobiome).

This research often requires that I be involved with the development and maintenance of bioinformatics tools, such as QIIME 2. I have also served as a bioinformatics consultant for several academic, national, and private-sector research laboratories that make use of shotgun metagenomics and amplicon sequencing data.
