I am a Computer Scientist at Lawrence Livermore National Lab and an active dinosaur in the open source community. I specialize in system engineering, infrastructure development, and automation for computational analyses and workflows. I have recently joined the Flux Framework project, where I am lead developer for the Flux Operator (for Kubernetes) and working on extending various language bindings. I have vision for extending the lab's coolest open source projects into more broad cloud-native communities, and for improving the developer experience. Previously I was a research software engineer at Stanford University in the Stanford Research Computing Center, and was lead developer for Singularity Hub, and more open source projects than I can count. I also founded and ran RSE Services (Research Software Engineering Services), created the first Stanford Software Survey, and was responsible for submitting the first proposal to make Research Software Engineer an official role at Stanford. In 2019 I created the (now) Developer Stories podcast, and continue to host and produce it to present day.
As a graduate student my work spanned computer science, medicine, and imaging. I was a proud member of the Poldrack Lab at Stanford. Our work spanned neuro-informatics, cognitive neuroscience, and reproducibility. I was introduced to the domain of neuroimaging as an RA in the Laboratory of Neurogenetics at Duke University working under Ahmad Hariri.
The qualities of experience that are most fulfilling to me are making things work, organizing and understanding new processes, and creating efficiency and beauty in design. I love learning, programming and debugging, and I have vision for how I want the future to be. I am adamant about pursuing the things that make me happy, today and now. A successful life means confidence in a future vision and happiness in the present.
