I'm Shawn, a 4th year undergrad @ UCLA studying Biology, B.S. and Cognitive Science, B.S., with a Specialization in Computing.
I'm currently lead student web-developer & designer for @ASUCLA and the Population Health Management Intern for UCLA Health FPG.
Previously lead full-stack developer LanguageBird, LLC.
I'm passionate about research, especially in cognitive psychology, where I am currently studying the spatial-relocation memory errors of young adults in regard to risks & rewards, for UCLA's departmental honors thesis in Dr. Alan Castel's Memory and Lifespan Cognition Lab, with Alexander Siegel, M.A..
When not conducting ground-breaking research, my main interests include software development, full-stack web & digital/graphic design, and user-interface & user-experience development — all of which I sport 10+ years of experience in.
At UCLA, some current projects I've worked on include myEMRA®, a software I developed for UCLA Health, and QR Chem, a smart was to share and access 3D molecular structures. (Read Press Release and checkout the Publication in Nature Reviews Chemistry.)
