Stephen Salim

I am an aspiring bioinformatician / computational biologist. I recently graduated from Atma Jaya Catholic University of Indonesia with B.S. in Biotechnology. I am currently working on my independent project about bioinformatics. I have a passion for crafting and uncovering the stories behind a big pile of data. When I am not in front of the laptop, I can be found out lifting weights to burn excess calories from ice cream.
