Daniel Jacobs


I have a degree in computer science from Queens College. My interest in coding began in high school, where I took courses which taught me about front end web development. I took this knowledge into the first college I attended, Adelphi University, where I worked on the university web team as a student worker. I was studying physics at Adelphi University, and during my last semester there, I developed a passion for programming while taking both an introductory computer science course and a physics elective about the programming language MATLAB.

I learned many more programming languages once I transferred to Queens College, and tutored other students both through the computer science department and privately. I learned Python in order to help a physics professor at Queens College with his research on measuring the impact of certain factors on the sustainability of world peace. I am now working in the BioMedia Group at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory to develop tools to aid students in learning the many topics taught in the DNA Learning Center.
