A bit about my skillset

Research

I have experience researching at Sandia National Laboratories, The Walt Disney Company, multiple universities, and independently.

Development

I am passionate about process acceleration. I've applied algorithmic optimization to real-world environments ranging from coastal power distribution systems to my calendar. Webapps, databases, and algorithm development- I'm there.

Multidisciplinary

I'm curious about how to apply my quantitative and development skills to other fields, spanning medical device design to political science and policy analysis.
