Hi! I'm Jude
I am a master's student in Computer Science and Applications at Virginia Tech focusing on Human Computer Interaction, Data Analytics, and Machine Learning. My passion is developing and designing interfaces that put the user first while bridging the gap between human and artificial intelligence.
Previously, I earned my undergraduate degree in Information Technology at the University of Queensland.
I also have over 3 years of work experience in a variety of roles ranging from front-end development to teaching in coding camps. The bulk of these work years were spent designing, building, maintaining, analyzing, and testing responsive websites for businesses both big and small.
With a well-developed skill set centered around web technologies and UX, I am looking for exciting opportunities to further grow as a developer, data scientist, and UX practitioner.

The focus subjects for my graduate studies are Data Analytics, Machine Learning, and Human Computer Interaction. These subjects build upon the interests I have developed during my undergraduate studies and subsequent employment. I am currently working with the Crowd Intelligence Lab advised by Dr. Kurt Luther. Through Civil War Photo Sleuth and other projects, we explore the intersection between crowd-sourced intelligence and artificial intelligence.

Bachelor's in Information Technology (Hons)
2014 - 2017
The foundation of my computer science knowledge. Starting with no coding experience, I was able to learn a wide array of skills including various coding languages, design thinking, data systems, and algorithms. These skills are then applied towards various individual and group projects as well as a thesis project in Human Computer Interaction advised by Professor Stephen Viller.
