In charge of multiple projects spearheaded by the Office of Investigations Computer Crimes Unit, both for internal use and for public use, using a wide variety of platforms and applications, including open-source and custom-built software.
Led a 6-person development team in designing, building, and launching a large-scale forensic evidence collection and analysis platform, to provide innovative tools for new types of investigative operations. This involved extensive development of multiple applications across a diverse array of networks and environments, managed by a central Python application over heavily-encrypted connections and APIs. The system also needed a highly intuitive interface, requiring little to no training for users of any technical skill level. Technologies used include Python (with and without Django), PostgreSQL, PHP, MySQL, and Bash scripting. » Remote Forensic Investigation Platform
