My name is Daniel Kozlowski; I'm a software engineer.
I specialize in very-high performance Ruby software. I led Rails development and operations at Classwave for a year and a half, and have given several lectures at UCSB on Rails basics and freelance contracting. Before Ruby, I built Wordpress, Joomla, Simpleforum, and Mambo sites for dozens of small businesses in Southern California. I also help build robotic prototypes.
I am a research developer for the Department of Psychology at UCSB, writing survey software and performing fMRI analysis for the Schooler metacognition and Miller neurocognition labs. I worked at several level-1 trauma centers in San Diego and Santa Barbara as a Trauma Technician for two and a half years before transferring to and graduating from UCSB with a B.S. in Cognitive Neuroscience in 2013.
I enjoy homebrewing, sailing, beekeeping, and DIY projects. I'm working on a Private Pilot's license, and am in wait to adopt a Goldoodle puppy. I read constantly about programming and neuroscience and I love new opportunities and new adventures. I really, really, enjoy people.
You can see my lovely partner's work here.
