Obtained my MSc in Bioinformatics from the University of British Columbia (supervised by the amazing Jenny Bryan) and my Bachelor of Computer Science from the University of Waterloo, Canada. My masters thesis project involved developing computational methods to automatically analyze droplet digital PCR data.
I enjoy writing useful & reusable software tools to help others — check out my projects. In the past several years I've become an experienced R useR and an expert in R-Shiny.
I'm addicted to soccer, travelling at any given (and non-given) moment, getting into philosophical debates, and meeting new people :)
Grew up in Tel Aviv, Israel, moved to Toronto, Canada during my teens, worked in San Francisco after undergrad, crossed the border again to Vancouver, Canada for grad school, spent many months in other countries backpacking.
I also have an old blog, mostly from high school and some old travelling trips, that I'll leave here just because I want to have a reference to it somewhere.
You can find my email and social media links at the bottom of every page. As I said, I love meeting new people so don't hesitate to send a message!
I do a lot of consulting work in R and Shiny, so feel free to get in touch if you want to discuss potential projects.
Help feed me & my coding obsession

I do spend an immense amount of time developing and constantly improving my R packages, Beautiful Jekyll, and my shiny articles, so it would be amazing if some of my hard work translated into some compensation so that I'll be able to shop at fancy Whole Foods once in a while!
