I am responsible for creating the systems and procedures that allow the University website to function properly. I take the visual design for the site and find a way to implement that design in HTML and CSS with an eye toward modularity and inheritance - this way we're able to work on pieces of the design independently and to customize the designs for our various departments while still providing the same basic layout from the same codebase.

I also create and maintain custom web applications for the University in PHP and MySQL. This includes the JavaScript powered elements of our site that access data from those apps via a collection of APIs.

I figure out ways to make our site design and dynamic content accessible and manageable through the University's content management system.
