I am a Lab Assistant working under George R. Washko, Jr., MMSc, MD; I began in September of 2014. I have been working closely with Raúl San José Estépar, Ph.D.; James C. Ross, Ph.D.; and Rola Harmouche Ph.D. Initially I was focused on manual data analysis and simple programming tasks; subsequently my work has refocused and I now primarily handle data management, bulk data analysis and QA.
I graduated from Connecticut College (2014) with a BA in Biology; I focused on the intersection of computer science and biology. I worked as an intern during the summer of 2013 at Arcadia Healthcare Solutions. There I had training on the proper methods of working with Electronic Health Records (EHR), Protected Health Information (PHI) and electronic Protected Health Information(ePHI); I also gained QA experience working on an automated testing platform for their website (utilizing Ruby on Rails, Cucumber, Capybara, and Selenium).
