At Stanford I studied, taught, and researched computer science, bioinformatics, and neuroscience. At Cytobank I applied my skills and knowledge to developing their complex web application. My roles greatly expanded over time, from writing code and creating visualizations to proposing and executing large-scale projects. I am most proud of the major project I led to examine the overall ‘usability’ of the product and implement a significant redesign of the entire application.
I am now working as an independent web developer and consultant, as well as on personal projects.
My hard skills include full-stack web development, software usability, data visualization, and a robust knowledge of science, technology, and biomedicine.
My soft skills include that I am a fast and eager learner and an effective communicator and teacher. I am detail-oriented and thorough, yet pride myself as a big-picture thinker who strives to never lose sight of what is really important about a given task.
I love to 'learn by doing' and to balance a 'bias towards action' approach with rational 'reasoning from first principles’.
Independent Web Developer and Consultant @ I am always looking for projects that:
1) Aim to contribute real human value to the world.
2) Are solving interesting problems.
3) I could be put to good use on.
