About Jeffrey Oliver...

I provide bioinformatic support to life and health science researchers, especially in accessing and interpreting data from biological data repositories. I am a specialist in the intersection of population genetics and phylogenetics and have programming expertise in R, Java, and python.

I earned my Ph.D. at the University of Arizona studying phyloinformatics, then spent five years at Yale University as a bioinformatic and molecular biology post-doc, where I developed open-source bioinformatic software packages. I then went on to a post-doctoral position at Oregon State University, where I continued developing bioinformatic software and platforms for genomic data management.

You can find my publications on Google Scholar and PubMed.
