AboutChristian loves science and is insatiably curious. Three countries claim his citizenship (Germany, Canada, US) While assisting on private plantations for a sampling project in the Fraser Valley, he realized he didn't want to stay in the lab: "I wanted to connect with the people who were going to benefit from our findings and help them help us!" Why not learn how to make web and mobile applications to facilitate this connection? After going through a "coding bootcamp" Christian kept teaching himself various programming frameworks and has been working for tech startups all over Canada since December 2014. Christian's life goal is to combine the goodwill of the individuals of our society with the expert knowledge of our scientific community. He believes citizen science is the future of research and that high quality web and mobile applications is the glue that will hold this dream. He is currently looking to contribute to a project that will help him hone his skills while working towards his dream anywhere in the world!
