I build deep tech at the intersection of biology, engineering and computer science.

I’m currently Chief Technology Officer and co-founder at Dynomics. We’re a startup focused on discovering targeted therapies to reverse heart failure using complex in silico and in vitro systems.

In a past life I studied cosmology and galaxy formation at the Kavli Institute at MIT, leading the Caterpillar Project, and was a contributor to the Illustris Project at the Center for Astrophysics at Harvard University.

I am based between San Francisco, CA and Brisbane, Australia.

Although a lot of code I’ve written recently is tied up in my new ventures, some of my public projects and astrophysics work can be found at these repositories on GitHub. Examples include:

    More tools, especially bio focused, will be made available soon.
