I'm a genomics researcher who uses R and Perl (because I was exposed to bioinformatics around 2005). Most of this blog is on analyses related to genomics. Older posts (before 2015) have a transcriptome theme to them, whereas the newer posts (after 2015) will be more related to DNA sequencing. In 2016 I wanted to write more complete posts but ended up not posting much. I have decided in 2017 to write more shorter posts instead of not posting anything. I'll aim to write at least two posts a month.
If you are interested in any of the posts and have a question just leave a comment or feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will try to answer as soon as possible. Or if you found a post useful and just wanted to let me know, feel free to email me as well. All comments are moderated and will only appear after approval. Due to the large amount of spam, I may miss genuine comments.
Lastly, I've been using Twitter for a while now. I use it mainly for work purposes, e.g. posting new papers I've read, linking to bioinformatic resources, etc. and it has been great in terms of finding useful stuff. Give it a go!

P.S. In case you were wondering, the image used as the header of this site was taken on the 18th of September 2016 from The Pinnacles. (My last last header image was a photo taken on the top of Mount Fuji, after a successful overnight hike.)
P.P.S. If you are interested in my C.V., you can find it on GitHub.
P.P.P.S. Regarding the blog title "Musings from an unlikely candidate", it was modified from "Musings from a PhD candidate", which was just a generic placeholder I used when I first created this blog. I see myself as an unlikely candidate because of how my life has turned out. And I had to change it because I'm no longer a PhD candidate 😉
