About Myself


I am a current full time employee at the Applied Physics Laboratory working as a Software Engineer, while obtaining my masters degree in Computer Science at The Johns Hopkins University I obtained my bachelor's degree at JHU in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering.

In this site I share a couple of the projects I was involved in during college, along with some personal projects and proivide a little bit of background about me. My hopes are that I will have some free time weekly to update this site with Science News I find interesting!

Software Engineer

I am currently a software engineer at the Applied Physics Laboratory working on projects such as NASA's Double Asteroid Redirection Task as part of the Flight Software Team, The Block Object Storage Service (BOSS) a Petascale Volumetric Database, and SABER - creating tools to facilitate Big Data computational processes.

August 2017 - Current

Software Engineering Intern

As a Software Engineering intern at the Applied Physics Laboratory I extended a Python package that parallelizes common data access workflows to allow for easy data transfer and analyses from different petascale databases through a single remote. I also developed a user web-based interface for a partner company using React-JS(front end) and FlaskApp (back end) to allow for easy big data access and data sharing between companies.

Summer 2017

Research and Development Intern

As a research and develpment intern at the Diabetes Research Institute, I co-designed and assembled a high perfusion device, using 3D CAD, 3D printing techniques and Python and MATLAB coding languages. I also completed a user-manual and code for a MATLAB program designed to measure sarcomere displacement in heart contractions.

Summer 2016

Quality Assurance Analyst

As a quality assurance analyst at the Integrated Imaging Center, I administered quality control testing on IIC Zeiss microscopes by developing VB scripts. I managed a satellite facility and provided hands-on microscope training for new users.

May 2015 - May 2016

The Johns Hopkins University

I was accepted to JHU to complete a bachelor's degree in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and a minor in Computational Medicine by May of 2018.
