ABOUT ME
________________________________________________________________________________

I am currently a PhD candidate in the Bioinformatics and Integrative Genomics
program at Harvard Medical School. I work in Dr. Baym's lab studying 
microbial genetics.

I completed my undergraduate degree in Bioinformatics from UC San Diego. While
there, I was heavily involved with UBIC and Lab Expo.

The best way to contact me regarding inquiries or opportunities is through the 
contact page.


ABOUT THIS SITE
________________________________________________________________________________

Sometime before I was born, the Internet was a weird and wondrous place. 
Everybody used to have their own goofy website cobbled together with bare 
HTML/CSS and people would routinely stumble upon delightfully unique sites 
and communities.

But eventually this changed.

While the internet of old was primarily created by and for individuals, today's 
internet is increasingly dominated by corporate monoliths. Google, Facebook, 
Twitter, Reddit, and Amazon have become synonymous with the 'internet.' This 
domination means internet surfers are now at the whims and fancies of 
corporations who, in the aggregate, only care about collecting & then selling 
people's personal data. I yearn for a return to the glory days of ye olden 
internet. 

As a result, I think everybody can and should have their own website.

Towards that end, here is the Khan Academy course I took to learn HTML & CSS. 
Also, this website borrows heavily from the codebase and design philosophy of 
KISS Linux's website. It's a pretty awesome distro, you should check it out.

In addition, here are some other websites I have come across that I am a big 
fan of. Some of these people I know personally, and others I don't. I do not 
endorse or condone anything on these sites, other than the fact that they exist.
