Luke Giacalone

Software Engineer


I am a full-stack developer with four summers of experience in the field of computer science. My strong work experience has been focused in the biotech industry and in furthering medical advancement. Currently an undergraduate student at the University of Chicago, I am learning and gaining experience in the latest technologies.



I have extensive knowledge in many programming languages such as Java, JavaScript, HTML, CSS, C, Python, and others.


My previous jobs have given me experience in databases such as PostgreSQL, Elasticsearch, and MySQL.


I am a quick learner eager to pick up new skills and apply them to my work.


I work well with others in a collaborative environment on agile development teams and on my own as an individual contributor.
