Don't have a degree of the kind you are asking about but plenty of technology related work experience in several countries

masters and doctorate in neuroscience and neuropharmacology, bachelors in organic chemistry and pharmacology, many years working in diverse field biology and biochemistry positions before ten years as a professor (pathophysiology and premed), nearly ten now as an editor for molecular biology, and now managing curriculum development in a science grad university (physics, neuroscience, evolution, etc)...

Oh, and I like cooking.

Too many people! Almost all of the world's problems are due to overpopulation. The rest are due to religion.
