Hello, I'm Camilo Valdes.  I'm a Ph.D Candidate in computer science, researcher and software developer in Miami, Florida.

My current research involves developing high-performance machine learning applications in cloud infrastructure for studying how microbes affect human disease. Previously, I have also worked on studying how classes of coding and non-coding mRNAs influence human cancers.  I'm a big supporter of open science and reproducible research.

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