About Reece

The central theme of my career is to apply an extensive background in computing to building practical and reliable tools that improve our understanding of biology. I thrive when working in a team to build well-engineered data architectures and systems that make simple biological data analyses simple and complex ones possible.

At Genentech, I developed Unison, a system that integrated essentially all protein databases and over 70 prediction types to enable complex analysis and hypothesis generation. At Locus Development (later acquired by InVitae), I was the second hire after founders. My focus is building tools that enable InVitae to deliver reliable clinical reports based on genomic sequencing and diagnostics.

I am an ego-free team player. I enjoy managing and mentoring. I listen well and I can drive teams to decisions when needed (and give lots of room when they're not). I am pragmatic. I have a knack for distinguishing real technological opportunities from the fads. And I know when to be scrappy for prototyping and diligent for production.

For my next move, I want to combine all of this experience to building a platform for encouraging patient involvement in their own health care, improving the health care system through lower cost and better outcomes, and networking patients, physicians, researchers, and pharmaceutical companies.
