I have an academic background in biological systems engineering and biology. I picked up some Python and JavaScript along the way and currently work as a freelance programmer and data analyst. I enjoy working with these two languages, which seem capable of building just about anything.

My other interests include economics, public health and life sciences research. I’ll write about some of these topics when I know enough to be competent, otherwise I’ll stick to summarizing the views of others.


I’m mostly familiar with Python and Flask for web development along with JavaScript on the frontend. I also enjoy asking questions and trying to answer them with data, using tools like Jupyter Notebooks, Pandas, and D3.js.
