He earned his PhD from the University of Pennsylvania in biochemistry and molecular biophysics in 2019, and is currently a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Tübingen as well as head of a software consultancy specializing in analysis of RNA using Mass Spectrometry. Sam is the executive chairperson of the OpenMS project, where he also serves as a core developer. Sam has held a deep interest in open-source philosophy ever since being exposed to Linux in his teen years, and is seeking to expand the reach of open-source software in the sciences. Sam currently lives in Tübingen, Germany with his wife Amanda and their cat Athena. When not coding, analyzing data, or responding to emails, Sam enjoys brewing beer, long bike rides through the forest, and travelling.
