Hi, I'm Kairsten (CARE-stin). I'm a full stack developer with a passion for data visualization and
UX design. I currently work at Fred Hutch in the
Bedford Lab as a contributor to both Nextstrain
and the Seattle Flu Study.
I previously worked at IHME as a full stack developer and a
data analyst on the dietary risk factors team.
I am an autodidact who used free and online resources to learn to code after receiving a Bachelor's degree in Biology.
When I'm not programming, I enjoy cooking, playing tabletop games, weightlifting, climbing, and reading sci-fi or fantasy.
I grew up on the East coast and am currently based in Seattle.
I occasionally do freelance Tableau dashboard development. Please email me at
email@example.com to schedule an informational.
Thanks for visiting my website.
