I am passionate about teaching computational skills to scientists. All of my teaching is in the workshop format and much of it through the excellent Software Carpentry and Data Carpentry organizations. I’ve been teaching for the carpentries since 2008, and I am a founding board member of Data Carpentry. As part of my previous position as Informatics Project Manager and Training Coordinator at the now-defunct National Evolutionary Synthesis Center, I ran our summer NESCent Academy workshop program and taught phylogeny workshops through our NESCent Ambassador program in developing countries.

As part of the process for becoming a Software / Data Carpentry trainer-of-trainers (i.e. able to run instructor training sessions), I have a series of blog posts on pedagogy. Start reading them here.
