Experience

Interim IT Manager for Research Program

Johns Hopkins Hospital system

I helped to ensure that the research being done by the hematology department was fully functional and streamlined. I ensured patients got surveys on time and doctors were prepared for each clinic encounter. I also developed new tools to streamline the process further.

Summer 2019

Database Developer

Johns Hopkins Sickle Cell Infusion Center

I created a new local database that sanitized data inputs to allow for viable data reading with great improvements over the older method. I ensured the proper functionality of the database and that there was a simple workflow for the nurse practitioners and physicians assistants who would make use of it.

Summer 2018

Intern

Harbour labs

As advancing and developing cyber security tools is important, I learned several concepts pertaining to cybersecurity and developed tools to encrypt systems while I interned there for school credit.

Demonstrations

This is a program I developed, based on the Wilson Reading System, as a tool to assist special needs students in learning the alphabet. Each letter and many combinations are represented, this allows for the spelling of words and phrases, teaching students how to pronounce words and understand the alphabet.
A special education teacher discussed with me the issues she had using the Wilson Reading System, which is only available as a physical product. The Wilson Reading System is used to help students learn to read, but pieces are often lost, which requires repurchasing the package. The teacher asked if it was possible to replicate the system as a computer program.

Interests

Apart from being a software developer, I enjoy spending time reading, playing both video games and board games and hiking. I enjoy games that challenge the mind or contain intriguing stories. I also enjoy reading fantasy and science fiction literature; the best way to end the week is with a good book.
