Robert Merrill–Principal

uFunctional LLC is presently my solo consulting practice.

I’m a strong writer, and speaker, and a fast learner. I see patterns that others miss.

You will understand my explanations, and I am compassionate and a good listener. My goal is for you to succeed, using resources you already have whenever possible.

Before founding uFunctional in February 2007, I served almost 10 years with CDW Berbee as a software developer, business analyst, project estimation specialist, and technical sales person.

My previous career was as an atmospheric science researcher, software developer, and instructor with the University of Wisconsin.

I hold a Ph.D. in Atmospheric Science and a Graduate Certificate in Bioinformatics.

Employment and Internships

uFunctional LLC does not presently offer either employment or internships, but in times like these I want to help IT professionals in the Madison, WI area expand their network, if I am able.
