Career Descripton

  • Ph.D. in Biological Sciences

    The primary topic of my doctoral work involves statistical modelling in population genetics. I use mathematical theory to discover new genetic trends in populations evolving over time.
  • Assistant Specialist in Clinical Neuropsychiatry

    My clinical studies include neurological measures looking for electro-physiological biomarkers in the EEG of patients suffering from schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
  • Webmaster Services

    I was initially employed and trained by the University of California, Systemwide in 2010 to create an multicampus website and online portal. Since then, I have been working for non-profit organizations and small businesses to create high quality products at an affordable price.
