Hello 👋 I am Cristien.

I am a Junior Frontend Engineer who has just been on a 2-year career break to focus on raising my little family.

I am currently refreshing my programming skills and actively looking for engineer roles.

Previously a Research Lab Scientist at University of Liverpool and Cancer Research UK working on various projects on Perinatal Women's Health, Infectious Diseases and Cancer. I have thoroughly enjoyed my roles in Science as it involved a lot of hypothesis, research, experiments planning and data analysis.

My current tech stack is HTML, CSS, JavaScript, React, Node and MongoDB. I also love designing things and have an interest in how design plays a vital role in creating meaningful and accesible interface and experience for the users.

I am currently learning React (particularly React Hooks) and going over JavaScript fundamentals in details.

In my spare time, you can find me hanging out with my husband and son. I love cooking something or watching Korean Drama on Netflix.
