LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/lilly-winfree-phd/

About: As a neuroscience researcher turned programmer, I bring my attention to detail, problem solving skills, and love of learning to my projects.

During my PhD research, I found my love for coding by learning Python and R for data analysis and visualization. My PhD taught me to be a detail-oriented, persistent self-starter, which are skills I use daily. In my next role, I worked on integrating biological data from multiple species, learning about databases and APIs and building my first website. In my current role as a product manager, I am combining my science background with my technical abilities by teaching researchers how to use open source data tools and standards to make their data better managed.
