I graduated from Duke University's Pratt School of Engineering in May 2012 after averaging 128,550 miles flown each of the prior two years commuting between full-time work in California, and school and research in North Carolina. I previously founded MyFit
, which developed analytical tools for helping colleges identify the next generation of high performers and was acquired by Naviance in October 2010
. My background is in biomedical engineering, and my primary research interests are brain-machine interfacing and neural engineering. I've been programming since I was six or seven and suffer from the constant delusion that anything I can think of, I can make happen. I believe that better tools will enable better research, and in turn a faster pace of innovation, and that this is critical to the future of science.
