About


I spent some 25 years developing innovative software and algorithms to acquire, analyze, display and store data from biotech instrumentation, mainly in Java. See "Past Experience" below.

Since the world is moving to the web, so am I, becoming conversant in JavaScript, Node.js, PHP and Python on the back end, and HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript on the front end. Consider me a "full-ish" stack developer.

Most of my recent projects involve acquiring (see BayNode Meetup talk), distilling (see NextQ), and integrating data (e.g. map data) from outside sources. I'm getting pretty good at that.


If you need help merging outside data into your web project, please contact me.

Past Experience: Instrumentation

- [DNA sequencers](https://www.thermofisher.com/us/en/home/life-science/sequencing/next-generation-sequencing/solid-next-generation-sequencing.html) - [Fluorescent microscope scanning assays](https://tools.thermofisher.com/content/sfs/manuals/4308436c.pdf) - [Real time PCR](https://www.thermofisher.com/order/catalog/product/4376357) - Flow cytometers, e.g. [BD Biosciences](http://www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/flowcytometry), [Cytek Biosciences](http://www.cytekdev.com/pages/FlowJo-Collectors%27-Edition.html) and [Leukobyte](http://leukobyte.com/)

Past Experience: Applications

- [Novel methods for display of multi-parameter data](https://www.google.ch/patents/US4845653) - [HLA typing](http://tools.thermofisher.com/content/sfs/brochures/cms_039789.pdf) for bone marrow transplantation - [HIV typing](https://www.google.ch/patents/US6806046) for drug resistance studies.

Most of this work was done in C or Java/Swing using desktop PCs. I'm continuing to do some contract work in these fields.
