Most recently, I have been focused on learning molecular lab skills and bioinformatic analysis. I have also gained experience in planning experiments, working with and rearing insects, and project management in a lab setting. During my undergrad I created individual based models and gained broad laboratory, field, and statistical skills.
Before University, I spent over a decade working in web development, and led a team of developers and designers for 7 years. The strong programming skills I developed have been a huge asset to my research career, as has my experience with version control, graphic design, database management, and delivering at pace.
