Senior Research Software Engineer
Being a software engineer at EcoHealth Alliance gives me the opportunity to work on many projects that each have different requirements and technology stacks. I really enjoy this range of work, but the technology is only part of what I like about working at EcoHealth Alliance. More important is the mission and the people. We have a great team and It feels wonderful to know that the work I do helps them to improve our global environment and to protect us from pandemic threats.
Robert Young is infrastructure lead on the REPEL project and develops software and infrastructure for the WAB-NET project at EcoHealth Alliance.
