Hello, I'm Camilo Valdes, a Ph.D Candidate in Computer Science at Florida International University. I’m a researcher and software developer in Miami, Florida.

My current research involves developing high-performance, real-time distributed applications for studying how microbes affect human disease. Previously, I worked on studying how classes of coding and non-coding mRNAs influence human cancers.

Castflyer is where I write about my research, which includes machine learning, cloud computing, bioinformatics, transcriptomics, metagenomics, statistics, data science, visualizations, software development and other assorted nerdery.


Software Projects

Most of the software projects I am involved in are for the support of my research, but I've been known to release an app or two that does something of interest to me — see work page for details.
