I am a highly-skilled software developer with over 12 years of training and experience in computer science, and 4+ years in mobile app development. My mobile development experience includes Android and iOS, with supporting server functionality implemented in Python with underlying SQL data storage. My experience with Android covers every level of app development, from design to deployment and user support. My academic work earning an M.S. ranged from novel statistical modeling and computer vision techniques to end-user support for experimental tablet applications. I am proficient in a wide variety of programming and scripting languages including Java, C/C++, Objective-C, Python, and Linux/UNIX shell scripting.
My largest-scale Android project to date is Quantro, a multiplayer action/puzzle game for which I was the designer and programmer. Quantro has been downloaded by over 20,000 people and has an average Google Play user rating of 4.3 / 5. Quantro features complex multithreaded and networked operation, and its implementation involved a wide range of Android's advanced features, including inter-application communication, threaded and asynchronous event processing, foreground/background services, near-field communication and SMS messaging, etc.
While working towards my M.S. I studied machine learning, cognitive modeling, generative models, object recognition, information retrieval, natural language processing and context-based classification. This work led to several applications, including assistive communication apps for iPad used for communicative and behavioral therapy. In addition to designing and implementing these apps, I provided personal support and training to end-users, and developed updates and additional features based on their feedback.
I'm eager to put my experience to work on your project. I'm equally comfortable taking the lead on app design and following detailed design specifications and requirements. Thanks for your consideration; I look forward to hearing from you.
