About Stephen

I am a recent PhD graduate in physical chemistry (emphasis on materials science) who has an interest in clean energy and big data. I have a strong programming background in ruby on rails, python, d3, and front end javascript frameworks which I have primarily used for organizing, parsing, and displaying large data sets of pictures and data plots.

I am very actively developing a webapp to interactively teach science in a way to improve retention over websites like Coursera. I am looking for business development, javascript programming (especially Meteor) or people with educational training. Please contact me if you are interested!

For fun, I am an active developer in 3d printing and have developed new open source hardware and software solutions for driving 4 color printing. Projects that really get me excited are those that take novel software/hardware solutions to make people's lives better.

I particularly enjoy taking an abstract vision for a better tomorrow and developing a concrete execution plan based on the current state of the technology. I am interested in either helping someone make their idea a reality or working together to create a vision.
