Following graduation he spent two years as a Research Assistant in the Large Scale Digital Cell Analysis System (LSDCAS) lab of Prof. Michael Mackey. He currently works as a bioinformatician in the parasitology division at New England Biolabs. He was led to non-relational systems by the idea that biology has no schema. He’s been a committer to the Apache CouchDB project for the last year and was an enthusiastic early adopter the year before that. Beyond CouchDB, Paul also contributes to a number of other open source projects.
