I am seeking a role where my technology skills along with my past leadership experience and communication skills can be applied in a high impact manner.

Skills and Strengths

My Neuro-exceptional talent

I am very self-motivated and am the type of person who doesn't give up until I finish a task or am able to figure out how to correctly fix/solve something. Additionally, I like to learn new things and want to make sure I understand something fully before completing a task or exercise related to it. While I am more introverted, I am a great listener and can make strong personal relationships with people, and I have a passion for helping people/making a difference in the world.

I used new technologies including software platforms, unit and behavioral testing libraries, and continuous integration tools. I also performed quality assurance analysis on a software application. Working with a group of three other students, we created an iOS app in Swift that allows users to store credit cards and IDs, as well as passwords and bills. Additionally, I helped deliver written reports and oral presentations in a technical setting.

Undergraduate Researcher - University of South Carolina / Computer Vision Lab

I was hired through a competitive application process to serve in a lab whose main goals were to simulate basic human vision functions with computers and to develop novel image procesing and machine learning applications to deal with practical applications. I reported directly to a Research Scientist in the Research Computing unit in the University of South Carolina's Division of Information Technology. I fulfilled job duties to support research tied to image processing, and I also conducted research and computed ground truths using LabelImg.
