About Me


I recently completed my PhD in Integrative Life Sciences at Virginia Commonwealth University.

I am currently a postdoctoral researcher as part of the HeartBD2K group at UCLA.

The integrative part means I focus on how to bring different kinds of biological data together.

I work and have worked with bioinformatics, computational biology, text mining, microbiology, virology, and molecular genetics.

My mission in life is to embrace nonsense and to amplify the signal in the noise.

My CV(pdf) Last updated Nov 28, 2017.

What do you do when you're not doing research?

I'm an amateur voice actor, often as part of live radio shows, previously with OTARP and and the Firehouse Radio Players.

I build software gizmos like Twitter bots: see MusicSuggestron and Talk About Science for examples.

I like photography but I'm not sure what that means in the modern world.


How can I contact you?

Email works best. 


Where else are you?




I help with Wikipedia as JHCaufield.

Researchgate (though I don't use it much)

LinkedIn (same here)


Why are so many of your blog posts laden with asterisks?

Asterisks indicate that there's something else to consider, which is always true. Sometimes these considerations must be postponed to maintain focus.


I must be kind.
