Employment

  • Physicist

    2011 - PRESENT
    Lawrence Livermore National Lab
    • Set up problems and implemented post-processing functionalities in Python and Fortran.
    • Made enhancements to VisIt (wci.llnl.gov/visit) visualization software.

Experience

  • NPR Projects (Development)
    https://github.com/tanimislam/nprstuff

    These are simple snippets of code I find useful to download NPR programs that I like. Within the command-line tools, I also include a GUI used for printing and displaying the text of articles to online periodicals (The New Yorker, The New York Times, etc.) that no longer have a print option to their articles.

  • Metareadwrite (Development)
    https://github.com/tanimislam/metareadwrite

    C++ code that uses Boost libraries and music tagging libraries to read and write music metadata from the command line.
