Overview

  1. 1. Jennifer Meneghin 4350 SE 46th Ave. • Portland, OR 97206 (503) 703-4063 • jennifercwd@yahoo.com Overview An accomplished software engineer and data analyst with over ten years experience in the research field completing projects on time and under budget Recent Experience Mitchell Lab, Computer Science Department, Portland State University, Portland, OR Research Assistant, 2006-present  Implemented the AdaBoost algorithm, a boosting algorithm intended to work over another base algorithm, on an evolutionary learning algorithm that evolves cellular automata to perform a classification task. Performed and tracked experiments comparing the performance of the evolutionary algorithm with and without AdaBoost. The AdaBoost algorithm has been implemented in C++ on a Linux system. Reysenbach Lab, Biology Department, Portland State University, Portland, OR Bioinformatics Research Associate, 2005-present  Designed and developed a MySQL database on a Linux system to house data for all known Aquificales species.  Designed and developed a website using Perl, JavaScript and HTML on a Linux system which allows users to browse, and submit new data to the Aquificales database. This website also has a private password protected section that allows lab members to verify records that have been received, update data submissions and check error logs.  Analyzed microbial diversity data using Primer 5, Ecosim, S-Libshuff, SPSS and the Kruskal-Wallis data mining tool. Goodman Lab, Vollum Institute, Oregon Health & Science University, Portland, OR Bioinformatics Research Associate, 2004-2005  Designed and developed an Oracle database used to compare a full spectrum of annotated genomic data to specific transcriptional regulatory regions of interest to the lab for human, mouse and rat genomes.  Designed and developed a web-based tool, using Java servlets and HTML, that allows researchers to import locations of transcriptional regulatory regions of interest into the database and run any of several reports comparing these locations to previously annotated genomic regions for human, mouse and rat genomes. Reysenbach Lab, Biology Department, Portland State University, Portland, OR Bioinformatics Research Associate, 2003-2004  Designed and developed a web-based data mining tool, using Java servlets and HTML on a Linux machine, for analyzing the lab’s microbial diversity data that performs Kruskal-Wallis and Wilcoxon Rank Sum tests.  Designed and developed a database to house all of the lab’s samples and experimental data. The system was implemented in MySQL on a Linux machine.  Designed and developed a web-based data entry tool for sample data collected in the field that uses a CGI script written in Perl to error check the data and import it into the MySQL database. Gartner/Griggs-Anderson Research, Portland, OR Senior Software Engineer, 2000-2002  Designed and developed an application in Java on Linux that sends out bulk e-mails, tracks the e-mails in a Sybase database, then parses, forwards, and tracks any replies received, including extensive decision making to automatically deal with bounced e-mails.  Worked on a team that designed and developed an application in Java on Linux that automatically generates trended graphical reports (bar charts, pie charts, etc.) from survey data housed in a Sybase database. It included a graphical user interface, and the ability export reports to HTML.
  2. 2.  Worked on a team that designed and developed a large-scale panel application in Java on Linux. This project included a web survey engine, bulk e-mailing, e-mail tracking, multiple graphical user interfaces and extensive reporting.  Designed a “win/loss” application for the statistics department. Worked on a team that developed the back-end database and analysis side of the application in Java on Linux. Software Engineer, 1997-2000  Designed and developed an application in Java on UNIX for the statistics department that searches for latent classes by estimating maximum likelihood for various types of data distributions.  Designed and developed a three tiered application in Java that includes a graphical user interface that allows telephone interviewers to log onto jobs, and data collection supervisors to maintain the project database. The server side of this application runs on UNIX and the client side on Windows 95 desktops. It uses RMI and uses JDBC to connect to both Sybase and Clipper databases.  Designed and developed an application on UNIX using Perl that exports survey data collected by mail/floppy disk housed in a Sybase database, and then massages and imports it into a large more general purpose Sybase database that holds survey data.  Developed many web surveys using Perl, connected to a Sybase database, on a UNIX system. Unpaid Experience Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Shared Resource, Oregon Health & Science University, Portland, OR Practicum, 2004  Used JSP and Java servlets to develop a general purpose query tool for an Oracle database that houses Affymetrix microarray data. Education  Graduate Certificate, Biomedical Informatics (GPA 4.0) Oregon Health and Science University, Portland, OR, 2003-2004  Computer Science/Electrical Engineering Classes, 10 graduate credit hours, Computability Theory (6) and Genetic Algorithms (4) Portland State University, Portland, OR, 1993-1994, 2003  Computer Science Classes, 36 undergraduate credit hours Portland State University, Portland, OR, 1991-1993  Bachelor of Science, Major in Mathematics with an emphasis on Statistics, Minor in Psychology Portland State University, Portland, OR, 1987-1990 Graduated in three years  Sherwood High School, Sherwood, OR 1984-1987 Graduated in three years Skills SQL • Sybase • MySQL • Oracle • PostgreSQL SPSS • Primer 5 (Plymouth Routines in Multivariate Ecological Research) • Ecosim • S-Libshuff Java (RMI, JDBC, JavaMail, JSP, Servlets, JUnit) • C/C++ • Perl • JavaScript • HTML UML • Extreme Programming • Object Oriented Design UNIX • Linux • Windows Interests Bioinformatics, Genomics, Data Mining, Biostatistics, Evolutionary Computation, Artificial Life
