I have over 7 years experience of experiment design and data analysis focusing on experimental fluid mechanics and 3 years experience in engineering education at the college and k-12 level. I'm passionate about engineering design, engineering education, and translating complex data into stories. I'm currently looking for full time work to use these research and education skills inside or out of academia, trying to remain located in beautiful Colorado.
I have a Ph.D. from the University of Colorado studying fluid dynamics. I like analyzing data in my spare time, and am currently ranked in the top 1% on the data science website kaggle. I also love the interface between software and hardware using devices like Arduino. I'm also passionate about learning new things, cycling, skiing, and craft beer. Be sure to also check out my side project: PowProject.com, a geospatial tool to help locate good backcountry skiing!
I'd like to invite you to scroll through my blog, which has a couple purposes: One is to share tips and tools I've learned along the way that will help you be more productive in research and life. The second is to share my passions, through trip reports and reviews. Please also feel free to check out my C.V., teaching, or research pages for more info about my accomplishments, and philosophies.
Thanks for stopping by!
