BioLogos Staff Spotlight:
As the resident Web developer for The BioLogos Foundation, Michael Marcacci is in charge of implementing the behind-the-scenes technology that makes the website work. Mike joined the BioLogos team in early 2011 as a student intern, and he will continue working with us until he goes to medical school in the fall of 2013. As our very adept programmer, Mike is responsible for implementing updates and new features to the BioLogos website and servers, and he was also instrumental in the site’s recent redesign. He is currently developing a Web app for iPhones and Android devices.
Mike’s involvement in the science and faith dialogue comes at least partly from his family. His uncle is William Hurlbut, Consulting Professor at the Neuroscience Institute at Stanford University and co-editor of the volume Altruism and Altruistic Love: Science, Philosophy, and Religion in Dialogue. However, Mike’s personal interest in the topic came about from seeing his biology classmates struggle with reconciling their faith and their studies.
When he’s not working on the latest updates to the BioLogos website, Mike enjoys rock climbing, hiking, mountain biking, and diving into his own design and Web development projects. He’s also continuing to work on what began as his undergraduate honors thesis in cancer biology at The Scripps Research Institute.
