Mitchell Faulk

Scientist | Educator


Hello! And welcome to my personal page.

I’m a scientist and educator with a passion for uncovering patterns. My expertise includes project design and management, quantitative analysis and reasoning, and the communication and visualization of data. I thrive in devising simple, easy-to-understand frameworks for complex ideas. My colleagues would describe me as a driven creator whose products set the bar in organization and precision, and my students have praised my ability to communicate with enthusiasm and order—rekindling their own passions for analytical and rigorous thinking. Currently I'm seeking opportunities that will allow me to generate meaningful, lasting impact as part of a open, creative, collaborative team. Specific fields of interest include software, health, and data.
