I am a graduate student in Information Technology Software Engineering. I also work part time as a graduate assistant teaching students proper coding techniques in Object Oriented Programming, and specifically the java programming language.
I have a B.S. in Pscychology with an emphasis placed upon: statistics, physiological/neuropsychology and the biological basis of human behavior.
I also performed research work paid for by the National Science Foundation last summer at OSU which focused upon biochemical correlates to female dyad expression of co-rumination and empathy among other operationally defined scales. The work was performed in the Life Sciences Building and the Psycho-biology laboratory which combines aspects of psychology, biology, statistics, and biochemistry/physiology.
My undergraduate background includes: biology, biochemistry, chemistry, and various other physical and social sciences as well. I am an active student in in MIT opencourseware, Stanford iTunes studies, Udacity, and Coursera courses as well.
In addition, I completed master's coursework in Cognitive Psychology and Forensic Psychology prior to switching tracks to an IT degree. I have worked in computer netoworking/repair, digital kiosk repair and with various statistical software as well.
I am a skeptic by nature and by training as science relies upon evidence, replication and proper statistical analysis.
I enjoy reading obscure technical, philosophical and political texts, and I love to write anout a myriad of subject matter.
