Hi There!

My name is Daniel, and I am a Bioinformatics Software Engineer living in SoCal.

Daniel Diaz

Sr. Bioinformatics Software Engineer


About Me

I am a Computer Science(B.S.) and Political Science(B.A.) graduate from the University of California, Irvine.

I love to code - I specialize in Genomics, Python applications, and Cloud Infrastructure.

I am currently expanding my skill set in Bioinformatics with my new role in Product Development as a Sr. Bioinformatics Software Engineer.

When I am not coding you might find me sailing, traveling, cycling, or volunteering with a Diabetes non-profit.

Blood Glucose Stats

A person without Type 1 Diabetes has an average blood glucose reading of 120. The graphic shows whether I am above, below, or at average. Leveraging an open source project called Nightscout I am able to scrape the data from the continous glucose monitor that I wear on my body. I hope to develop analytics and insights into glucose readings to help Type I Diabetics better manage their Diabetes.


Let’s work together to accomplish something great!
