I am starting my PhD program in Biomedical and Health Informatics this September (2014) at the University of Washington. I hope to use this blog as a tool not only to express my ideas, but also to organize thoughts and resources, and keep me on track towards the as yet undefined future. I will attempt to explore, discuss, and present my readings, findings, thoughts, and later, work, on biology, medicine, public health, mathematical modeling, and informatics.
