My name is Benjamin D. Lee. I'm currently a senior at Harvard studying computer science with a secondary in organismic and evolutionary biology. At heart, I'm a software engineer with a passion for research. My primary interests are in computational biology, robotic chemistry, evolutionary computing, and alignment-free sequence analysis. I've done my research at In-Q-Tel‘s Lab41 for the last two years, although I also spent a year in Harvard Medical School's Church lab. For more information about the work I've done (all of which is open source), take a look at my projects and published papers.

Here are some of my favorite programming tools:

And the tech I'm currently learning:

Beyond programming, I also enjoy listening to audiobooks (mostly nonfiction and sci-fi), watch collecting, and ham radio.
