I am a Community Manager for the Galaxy Project at Johns Hopkins University (and formerly at Emory University). I organize meetings and courses, prepare training materials, and improve Galaxy's documentation, community website, and web presence. As a community manager I am part of a team that makes sure that the Galaxy Project and the Galaxy Community are the same thing. Galaxy is its community.
Prior to working on Galaxy I ran the GMOD Help Desk from 2007-2010, where I did similar work. I am still involved in the GMOD community as a representative of Galaxy. I have a guest faculty appointment at the University of Oregon, and over the years I have telecommuted from the Phillips and Cresko Labs in the Institute of Ecology and Evolution (IE2) and the Toomey Lab in the Department of Earth Sciences.

My background is in computer science. I have been working in bioinformatics since 2000.
Prior to working on Galaxy (and for NESCent and GMOD before that) I worked as the database manager at the European Renal Genome project (EuReGene), as a member of the Edinburgh Mouse Atlas Project (EMAP). This project studied kidney development and disease. My work focused on gene expression patterns, and anatomy ontologies.
My pre-bioinformatics career included
- 4 years at an artificial intelligence lab at the University of Oregon,
- 6 years at database management system vendors,
- 2 years as a database administrator at General Mills,
Temporary positions (6 to 12 months) working on
- teaching database courses at the University of Oregon
- a data warehouse for inventory control in semiconductor manufacturing (HP),
- a test harness for a network controller operating system (IBM), and
- query tools for credit unions (EDS)
- A master's degree in Computer Science from the University of Minnesota. My research focused on transaction management in federated databases,
- A bachelor's degree in Computer Science from Iowa State University.
