I am a 3rd year graduate student in the Runstadler Lab in the Biological Engineering department at MIT, and I study the influenza virus, which is like a self-replicating deck of 8 poker cards. My training has been in Microbiology and Biochemistry. I am a self-taught Pythonista, and I learned Python by reading package documentation and Stack Overflow. From my previous life as an experimental biologist, I pivoted into sequence analysis and Python became the language of my choice.
