Why work with Josh Levy at Levy Informatics?

Reliability. Whether Josh is designing a system to integrate hundreds of ‘omics experiments into a triple store, automating interview transcript coding using machine learning, providing key analysis for a microbiome paper, or working with public heath officials to create disease definitions for automated querying, he makes things work. 

Client Focus. Josh understands the science above and beyond the numbers, helping him to communicate effectively with clients and translate needs into designs. He values being clear, transparent and setting realistic expectations. He also understands that if you can’t tell a good story, nobody cares what you did or how you did it.

Expertise. Josh brings 25+ years of experience analyzing data in the context of systems biology (mammalian, plant and microbial). He has architected and implemented systems for knowledge management and curation. His broad experience with programming, scripting, statistical languages, and object-oriented programming have made him language agnostic. Josh has worked with diverse databases across vendors, including graph and relational. He is GCP certified and knows how to handle data to protect privacy.

02 Testimonials


I have been a client of Josh's for over a year, and we worked together about a decade at the same company.

I could not make a stronger endorsement


(1) He is a skilled programmer and analyst. In fact, he was a major contributor to one of the coolest discoveries I've been privy to.

(2) He's capable of (and clearly enjoys) finding ways of solving problems he's never seen before.  

(3) He's also incredibly efficient and was often resourced on projects that were tricky, nebulous, and required a fast turnaround time.


Lastly, I consider him as much a friend as a colleague -- he's affable, patient, and is unanimously liked -- a true delight to work with.
