As I’ve mentioned previously, I’ve become involved as a volunteer Instructor for Software Carpentry, an organization that facilitates “boot camps” for researchers and others to increase programming and data management literacy. I’m excited to have recently finished the Instructor training seminar, and am now listed on the organization’s Team webpage.
I wrote a short summary of what I do for the page, and am reprinting it here, since it nicely archives how I currently see my professional self: >Jacob Levernier is a PhD student in Psychology at the University of Oregon, studying moral development, research ethics with digital data, and applied statistics. Jacob works between the disciplines of Psychology, Philosophy, and Computer Science. His interest in scientific computing centers on data management and workflow automation, both in the social sciences and related disciplines, including library science.
