My name is Jennifer Keane. I’m a full time software and web development professional, and I love my job. I graduated from NUI Maynooth with a double honours BSc in computer science and biology, and started my very first web design job in the real world in 2007.
I’m an information broker, I love to have it, to learn new things, to share it. I’m rarely found without a book somewhere nearby, and I’ve usually got 2 or 3 on the go at any one time. I like to soak up as much information as possible from as many sources as possible. I have a huge interest in biology, popular science, medicine, and alternative medicine, and spend a lot of my free time investigating claims made by alternative medicine practitioners (and then trying to find time to blog about them!).
While working, I studied for my MSc with the Open University, and in 2014, I graduated with an MSc in Science. Topics addressed in my masters included studies of brain development and behaviour (in relation to ageing, and addiction), and science education and communication.
I think there’s nothing that can’t be done, once you set your mind to it, and I intend to keep testing this hypothesis until I run out of time, or steam.
