Here's a little about me and my interests at the Dallas Makerspace :
I have always been interested in tinkering with things since the time I was a kid, taking apart radios, making slime, and helping my Dad with various projects in the garage or around the house. I have continued to play with these thing in my spare time, building furniture, working on a kayak (not yet finished), prototyping tools for the lab, etc. Professionally, my background is in science and medicine. I recieved my MD and PhD degrees from UT Southwestern and now work as a resident at a hospital in Dallas.
1) Biology- personal genomics, algae biofuel, agriculture, crowd-sourced/patient-driven medical research & information sharing
Back when I was doing my PhD research I started acquiring equipment for a home molecular biology lab that never went anywhere so I'm excited about working with the Bio projects group at DMS! I also have an interest in urban agriculture and have a garden that I'm working on near Fair Park: metro mini farm
3) Learning about arduino and device/computer interface
4) Relearning basic programming/scripting (have not pursued since high school!)
