Currently seeking Employment


I am a 27-year-old residing in the suburbs of NYC seeking to develop my career to its next level. As an overview, I am a well-rounded generalist equipped with a unique arsenal of theoretical, practical, and technical know-how spanning the biological, clinical, psychological, neural, and computer sciences; and additionally, art and business. At the core of my professional background lies a skill set of excellent programming, statistics, and data analytics that is perfect for working with large, potentially messy, heterogeneous sets of data. My breadth of skills combined with my passion for working both collaboratively and independently to imagine, create, and understand new frontiers has allowed me to instrumentally contribute to several meaningful scientific discoveries and incorporate a small personal business. I am at a stage where I have a wise sense of my strengths and weaknesses, a mature outlook on my career path, a tenacious work ethic, and wield a solid command over the subject-matter to which the last 9 years of my life have been dedicated. Most importantly, I love what I do and am eager to develop my knowledge and understanding to continue to produce world-class work.
