Get to Know the Avalon Team: Leah Lee


In our series "Get to Know the Avalon Team," we're providing a closer look at the individuals who are working each day to develop the Avalon Media System.

Leah Lee

Leah is a programmer for the Avalon Media System. She graduated from Indiana University with a Bachelor’s of Science in Computer Science in 2009. Since then, she has worked as a database administrator for Worm’s Way, Inc. and as a Systems Analyst/Programmer for IU International Services, developing for the Sunapsis International Office Module.


Can you talk a bit about your role in the project?

I am a new developer on the team, hoping to contribute as much as I can. I’ll be working with the rest of the development team to squash bugs and add functionality.


What is a typical work week like for you?

I work mostly on Avalon, but some of my time is spent maintaining IU’s Variations server.


What apps/software/gadgets can't you live without?

I like my Android smartphone because with it I can access a wealth of knowledge at any time. Sometimes, I don’t want to wait until I get home to find out some random piece of info... like the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow.   


When you’re not working, what can you be found doing? 

If I’m feeling lazy, I like playing video games, watching anime, reading manga, listening to music, and drawing. Since I naturally spend so much time on a computer or in front of a game console, I also try to do other things that don’t involve sitting like cooking, gardening, swimming or bicycling. I like DIY projects, especially since I have a house to upkeep, and some of them turn out really well (plumbing) and others, not so well (drywall).
