Interests

I am a freelance Ph.D. researcher, analyst, scientific project manager, and writer with multidisciplinary training and experience in the life and environmental sciences.  My professional interests broadly comprise ecophysiology, public health and policy, and the role of computer and web technologies in improving decision making, public awareness, and civic engagement.

Drawing upon my interdisciplinary experience and applied skills, I offer a modern perspective on the role of data and information science in identifying solutions to contemporary problems.  My objective is to apply my analytical skills toward engaging, impactful projects that make a difference in people’s lives.

I also have a strong interest in Business Analysis and Healthcare IT.  I like to keep my learning curve in an upward trajectory so that I’m always learning something new.  As with many of the advanced skills I have acquired, I am engaged in self-directed learning in these areas of expertise.

For more information, please refer to my online vitae.
