Statement


My work at MCRF includes application development on both web and windows platforms, database development and management, and other general support and maintence for both administrative and grant funded research. Most of my work is in C#, .NET, MS SQL, and SAS, though I have experience in other query and coding languages.
More recently I have gotten the opportunity to work with several big data and NLP platforms (ElasticSearch DB, Hadoop, cTakes NLP, etc.).
