Ideal Workplace Values

To me an ideal workplace is tolerant of others' differences, including neurodivergence, race, gender identity, and so on. I am transgender as well as autistic and have been in many situations where I'm "tolerated" but not truly "accepted" or, even better, "embraced" for my unique perspectives.


Skills and Strengths

My Neuro-exceptional talent

I started coding HTML/CSS when I was six years old for my Neopets PetPages, and ever since then have been learning more and more. When I started working as a research assistant, a post-bacc was leaving who had been working on a still-unfinished project to program some EEG experiments in an obscure programming language nobody else knew. I was an undergraduate at the time. I volunteered to learn the language (Presentation) and completed his project. This helped me move up through the ranks of the lab and I became indispensable as our statistical programmer.
