Breadth and depth in programming and science

Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $49

Typically people with broad sets of skills and expertise lack depth in those areas.

I am unusual in that I have an extensive collection of technical and research skills with significant depth in several disparate areas.

Whatever else I have been focusing on in my life, I have always spent a lot of time with computers and am an expert in many C-family languages including C, C++, Objective C, JavaScript, Ruby and Java, and some experience with C#, Perl and Python.

After completing my Ph.D. in physics, I worked as a research scientist in...

Service Description

My greatest strength and the area where I can help you the most is in research consulting.

I have considerable training and experience in research in a variety of disciplines. I worked at Intel twice as a contract researcher, once with neural networks and embedded micro-devices and later with software design tools. My academic training includes research in tissue culture, virology, immunology, computer science, bio-informatics and physics.

As my academic record demonstrates, I can bring large / long-term projects to completion but my strong preference is to work as a consultant on smaller things where I can learn about something new, apply expertise and problem solving and provide a valuable contribution - especially when that means laying the framework for others to follow with greater depth and time commitments.

I am experienced with programming and technical writing, both in their application to engineering and scientific research projects, and beyond.

I can also provide assistance with web-based systems, and have considerable experience and expertise with Ruby on Rails, JavaScript, HTML5 and CSS (though my strength is more on back-end processing than design and layout).
