Another one for the blogroll: Healthy Algorithms, a blog by Abraham Flaxman, who is doing a postdoc at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation and thinks that health metrics are a gold mine (or some such metaphor that's a little less about earth-raping) for applications of theoretical computer science techniques.

Abraham also has a recent arXiv preprint, on the expected weight of bounded-depth spanning trees of randomly weighted complete graphs, and has been posting on Markov chain Monte Carlo generation of random points in convex polytopes. So it's not all disease vectors and cute baby animals.
