My interest in web design stems from my work experience in the biotechnology sector. As a software engineer and project manager, I integrated and customized commercial Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) to help companies manage workflow and data within their laboratory facilities. My LIMS experience involved using PL/SQL and web pages to design user interfaces for Oracle databases.
Prior to my industrial experience, I was a research associate in academia, first at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and then Oxford University, where I did scientific programming (FORTRAN) and applied mathematical modeling.
My research experience has provided me with a wide range of skills for general problem solving, writing and presentation of data and content, all of which are widely applicable to designing websites both for personal and business needs.
