Interests

Helping other people learn to program is a passion I discovered after starting graduate school. I’m an organizer of UofT Coders, a weekly study group for researchers and community members where we teach each other programming, talk about issues and best practices in science, and consume snacks. I’m also an instructor with Software Carpentry, a worldwide network dedicated to helping people become better programmers and scientists. UofT Coders have hosted several workshops at the University of Toronto (April 25-26, 2016, May 9-10, 2016, May 26-27, 2016, February 3-4, 2017, January 18-19, 2018, June 18-19, 2018 and July 12-13, 2018), and we plan to host many more.

I love running, hiking, camping, and reading novels. My family and I areĀ hiking the Bruce Trail end-to-end. Check out photos and stories of our adventures onĀ the blog.
