I have degrees in mathematics and biology (computational and experimental neuroscience), and extensive additional experience in using scientific programming to solve real-world problems and enhance knowledge sharing. I am pursuing a career in which I use computational and mathematical tools to improve the quality of research and development, support evidence-based decision-making, and automate repetitive and error-prone data processes; while sharing this knowledge to help build capacity within the research workforce.
