About Tom Allen


I was born in Silver Spring, MD, just outside Washington, DC. I was raised in Iowa City, Iowa, and graduated from the University of Iowa with a Ph.D. in physics in May of 2000. Openly gay and happily leftist, I performed nude molecular modeling and data analysis in biophysics and bioinformatics at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, until early 2013 and may be slightly bitter about the savaging of funding for NSF and NIH grants due to the Budget Control Act of 2011.
