Hi! I’m Andrew Dupuis, a PhD candidate in Biomedical Engineering at Case Western Reserve University under Dr. Mark Griswold. I help design visualization tools and develop Magnetic Resonance Imaging hardware and software to make medical imaging faster, smarter, and easier to interpret.

While working on my PhD, I needed a better way to document projects – either for personal use or for public consumption. This blog is the result.

I’m habitually terrible at saving notes about what I’m working on – not that notes aren’t taken along the way. They just tend to be written on post-its and in handheld journals that eventually vanish into the ether. With the completion of my first Homelab, I settled on creating a blog that would act as persistant project notes.

My goal is for the development process, decisions, and struggles to be documented, much like a lab notebook (for when I inevitably have to go back and get something to work again). The result was this blog: a self-hosted, WordPress instance that is itself a learning experience for me.

As I get more comfortable with the format, things will change about the site to best support its intent. Many pages/posts will be private for my own use, so apologies in advance if something I reference in a public post is hidden/private. Send me an email, and I’ll do my best to share what I can/help figure stuff out.

Hopefully, one or two of these posts help someone solve the same issues I’m having. I can almost guarantee there’s a better way to do something than the way I wrote down/chose, so caveat emptor. If I’m wrong or do something dumb, leave a comment and let me know. I’ll fix the post, or at least add an addendum about it. I’m here to learn and get better at what I do, even if that means I eat crow half the time. Thanks for checking out my little corner of the internet!
