Projects


Atom Scheduler for Atom, Inc

Atom Scheduler is the main product for Atom, Inc. Founded in 2013, Atom was born out of a frustration with some scheduling software and practices I was using at my work. I spent time analyzing the situation, user needs, and opportunities for a new information system and developed Atom Scheduler. I am currently working on Version 3.

TRKR Incident Tracking & Notes

TRKR (said 'Tracker') is an online solution for event incident tracking and note-taking. Keeping track of specific times and incident details, along with which incidents are still active, is a challenging task with just a pen and some paper. Utilizing jQuery, I was able to create a simple system that reduces the burden on event staff charged with keeping track of incidents and notes. By simply keeping track of timing and visually displaying open incidents quality of incident summaries and notes has gone up at IU Event Services.

Faculty Citation Reports for IU Libraries

Quantifying faculty or researcher productiviy can be hard, especially when third-party citation tools do not provide accurate data or are not easily updated with accurate data. Together with Bob Noel (Science Librarian, IU Libraries), I have created a database-driven website for creating customizable faculty productivity profiles.

This work was submitted and accepted to the 7th International Conference on Qualitative and Quantitative Methods in Libraries (QQML 2015) in Paris. (Poster.)
