About me

I am a tinkerer, problem solver, and out-of-the-box thinker with a doctorate in Neuroscience and years of open source software contributions. Whether it's administering Linux servers, processing neuroimaging data, or hacking on Python code, throughout my academic and professional career I have been acquiring the knowledge and experience necessary to solve complex, interdisciplinary challenges, and I have a pension for facilitating the performance, reliability, and scalability of large, complex systems. My areas of focus are infrastructure engineering, system administration, and auditory research, but I'm also interested in data engineering, neuroengineering, and developing tooling for research and computing applications.

I earned my PhD in Neuroscience from the University of California, Davis where my research was in the fields of cognitive neuroscience and neuroengineering. My work was funded through over $200k in grants and hardware donations from organizations such as Google, Oculus/Meta, Nvidia, Samsung, Intel, and the UC Davis Clinical and Translational Science Center.

I am an articulate communicator. I am a conscientious and considerate team member. I perform effectively in both leadership and facilitatory roles. And, most importantly, I understand how to communicate and work proficiently in cross-disciplinary, fast-paced, and highly-technical environments.

I am an unabashed nerd and open book. So please, ask me anything.
