With a deep background in computer science, mathematical modeling, and humane communication, I make immediate and lasting contributions to teams developing software for diverse purposes. My experiences as an interdisciplinary scientist, a teacher, and a self-taught programmer make me sensitive to the ways that other people — whether collaborators or customers — think and communicate, and lead me to document my work carefully. I love style guides, code reviews, literature searches, and long hikes in the woods. I thrill to tricky technical problems that require insight and teamwork to solve. I am committed to using my skills and privileges to make the world a more just, sustainable, and creative place, and I seek out opportunities to work with people that share that commitment.
