A yearlong project to research and develop a prototype knowledge ecosystem in Drupal to aggregate and deliver information tools and resources related to local food systems.  I researched relevant information systems and tools in order to architect a robust framework within drupal.   Worked with a geographically-dispersed team of technical developers and project stakeholders to build this grant-funded prototype site.   nefke.nesawg.org

 

Koerner Center (Yale University)Migrated the Koerner Center’s static HTML website into the University’s Drupal 7 environment.   Set up a role-based system for Koerner Center Fellows to access restricted content (calendars, events, directories, etc.).  Customized drupal views, content types, blocks for display.

 

I organized and built Drupal 7  websites for Faculty within the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology.  Each site involved working with faculty to customize Drupal to present their research, publications and lab materials as they needed.    These sites all utilize Drupal’s Biblio module to manage extensive lists of publications.

 

Yale EEBI worked with a committee of faculty, staff and graduate students from the Yale University Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB) to migrate their old website to the Yale’s Drupal 7 platform.  This required a complete redesign of the site architecture and synthesizing content from several existing websites into a single easy-to-navigate site.  I customized drupal views, content-types, css, blocks and more for this site’s particular needs, and coordinated a somewhat complex production roll-out with Yale IT staff.

Biology at YaleDesigned and built a scalable and  easy-to-navigate portal for all Biology-related websites at Yale within the University’s Drupal 7 environment.   Coordinated with staff at the Office of the Provost.   Customized drupal views, css, and content types.

 

MCDBWorked with faculty to migrate the department’s website into Drupal 7.  Reorganized the content, added new functionality, customized views, content types, taxonomy and more.   Configured Biblio module to import and display collected faculty publications.  Coordinated move to production with Yale IT staff.

 

The NERL website is a custom theme built on Yale University’s drupal content management system (CMS), and takes full advantage of drupal’s modularity and flexibility, which enabled us to develop a custom architecture for organizing and sharing NERL’s web content.

Much of the content on this website is restricted to NERL members, utilizing Drupal’s content access and user/role capabilities.   Drupal views are used to display different slices of the database information.

I worked with NERL to consolidate two existing html websites (public and private) into a single drupal site.  I analyzed business needs, wrote the project specification, built the site within Yale’s drupal instrallation, worked with numerous technical service providers, and supervised external designers and programmers.

 

The ODAI website is a custom theme built on Yale University’s drupal content management system (CMS), and takes full advantage of drupal’s modularity and flexibility, which enabled us to develop a custom architecture for organizing and sharing ODAI’s web content.  I worked with ODAI to reconceive their web presence, analyzed business needs, wrote the project specification, built the site within Yale’s drupal instrallation, worked with numerous technical service providers, and supervised external designers and programmers. Taxonomy is used to bring together content based on a custom subject scheme developed to explore and highlight the diversity of Yale’s Digital Ecosystem.
