Anne Haley is an R&D engineer working remotely on Kitware’s Data and Analytics Team. Some of her responsibilities include architecture design of web applications and maintaining scalability, code integrity, and usability of our applications.
Prior to joining Kitware, Anne was a software developer at NASA Langley Research Center (LaRC). She worked on their SmartLab project to develop a laboratory workflow management platform. During her time at LaRC, she developed a smaller tool for checking vendor compliance as a side project. It got deployed this summer and is now used site-wide. There was an article published in their quarterly review about how much time it had already saved.
Anne received her master’s and bachelor’s degrees in computer science from Christopher Newport University in 2021 and 2020, respectively.
M.S. in computer science from Christopher Newport University, 2021
B.S. in computer science from Christopher Newport University, 2020
First place for the Three-Minute Thesis Presentation presented by the University of Queensland, 2020
Get to Know Anne
What made you want to become a Kitwarean? I admire the focus on scientific applications for software solutions. I want to contribute to something that is exploratory in nature, where the goal is to help someone make an advancement in human knowledge/capability. My goal is to work in an environment that will keep me learning.
What do you love most about what you do? Software development is a unique kind of puzzle that requires a mix of knowledge, creativity, and patience. I enjoy the breakdown of a problem in pursuit of a solution. I know that I enjoy a project when it’s the first thing I think about in the morning and the last thing I think of at night, simply because I’m compelled to solve the puzzle.
Share something interesting about yourself that is not on your resume. I’m very crafty! I love hand-making gifts for others, and most often it comes in the form of knitting and crochet.
