Hi! I'm Russell.
I'm a microbiologist who uses graph theory and machine learning to study the relationships that bacteria and archaea form with their host organisms, and lately giant viruses and their hosts. Or, I'm a computer scientist who builds software that uses concepts from evolution to extract knowledge about ecology from large datasets. Or, I'm a data scientist who uses Python to explore biological systems. Or, I'm a physicist that went rouge and defected to the squishy side of science. Take your pick.
I am an assistant professor at Kyoto University Institue of Chemical Research in the Ogata Laboratory.
