Hello. My name is JD Hoover and I am currently a sophomore working in the Information Technology Associates Program (ITAP) as an apprentice at DePauw University. I am a Biochemistry and Computer Science double major, and hope to continue on to either medical school or grad school. I enjoy studying technology and the sciences and hope to build upon these skills as much as I can during my time at DePauw.
In the Summer of 2011, I was selected to participate in a project under DePauw's Research Experience for Undergraduates Program, where I worked with other research assistants to create a computer program that helps to identify and reduce electronic distraction through the use of persuasive technology. Aside from the research, I also attended a series of scientific ethics sessions.
