I am a scientific programmer with a background in psychological research and computer programming. My primary aim is to develop open-source tools for researchers to facilitate reproducible data analysis.
In 2018, I earned an M.S. in Psychology from the University of Oregon where I was a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow in the Social and Affective Neuroscience Lab. My research focused on using behavioral and neuroimaging data to study decision making and goal pursuit as related to health outcomes.
During my graduate career, I created open-source data analysis code, as well as training materials in R and Python for use by fellow researchers. Tutorials can be found on this site and all associated code is available on GitHub. I subsequently formalized my computer programming skills through the Database Specialist Certification at Lane Community College in 2020.
