St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
Senior Software Engineer
Hartwell Center for Bioinformatics and Biotechnology
May 2001–May 2008

Led a three-member team to develop TrakIT, a publication management system for St. Jude publications. TrakIT integrates with multiple public databases to assemble an exhaustive set of St. Jude publication data. It allows investigators to annotate these publications with shared resource usage, cancer center/multidisciplinary program affiliations, and research categories, as well as selecting which publications they would like to appear on their faculty bio page on This application reduced a several week grant renewal process to a point-and-click report generation lasting a few seconds.

Led a three-member team to migrate 684,000 shared resource service orders spanning thirteen laboratory services and 23 years from the Hartwell Center's ( legacy database to the Shared Resource Management (SRM) database. During this project I developed mappings and algorithms for migration of the data from the legacy schema to the SRM schema. I also developed test cases and SQL queries to validate the migration. I maintained the project schedule, conducted weekly status update meetings, and oversaw the development of Oracle PL/SQL packages that implemented the mappings and algorithms.

Led a two-member team to develop a web-based scheduling system for shared laboratory instrumentation. This system allows laboratory managers to setup calendars (daily, weekly, and monthly) for each of their instruments and allows users to login to the system and book appointments. Laboratory managers may also setup records for each of their technicians and then rank them on each instrument. Users who request appointments for technician-assisted usage are assigned the highest ranked available technician. If no technician is available, the booking is denied. The system also bills users at a defined hourly rate through the SRM system.
