Analysis of the gut microbiome of children with cystic fibrosis (CF) and on methods to identify enriched functions.
Note: Everything was done in Linux and most of the programming was done in Python (+Pandas).
  • October 2010 – June 2012: Consultant (Cloud and web developer / programmer) — Greater Seattle Area, USA.
Built a customer relationship management (CRM) website using Django (+Python, MySQL) with extended web services, command line interface, mobile apps, etc.
