Hi. I'm Chris Miller. This is my weblog. There are many like it, but this one is mine. If you poke around, you're likely to find short essays mixed with interesting links about science, politics, art, and the intersection of technology and culture.
My day job is doing science in the Genome Institute at Washington University. If you want a lengthy explanation of what I do, take a look at my CV. If you're after the short version, I use computers to help understand why we get cancer and how we might treat it more effectively.
I'm a native St. Louisan, but spent most of the last 5 years in Houston, finishing my PhD. Now that I'm back, I spend a lot of time rediscovering both the city and the great outdoor areas nearby.
Since there are too many Chris Millers in this world, I added my middle initial to get this domain name. I long ago gave up the pretense of web anonymity that many people cling to. To me, this is the natural corollary of all that "be yourself" advice you got in grade school.
You'll find links to my activity elsewhere on the web on my landing page
