Leanne Hobbs

I am a full-stack Ruby on Rails developer with a solid background in professional software and web development. I am interested in using my experience in industry combined with current research practices to build innovative and user-centric tools.

In my role as Senior Software Engineer at Newcastle, I contribute to the Interdisciplinary Computing and BioSystems(ICOS) research group, Portabolomics and EnDROIDS projects. My core project is the CellRepo version control system for cell engineering, linking the digital footprint of engineered organisms to a DNA digital signature present in the organism. I am also responsible for coordinating sustainable research software engineering practices throughout the Portabolomics project.
