I am a research scientist at the HLTCOE and an assistant research scientist with ECE, with my work spanning a number of disciplines. The commonalities are statistical pattern recognition, graph theory, data fusion, semi-supervised learning, and/or computational linguistics. I also tend to shy away from curated and cared-for datasets, instead preferring the wild-west of the real world. This may be in part due to my appreciation for the outdoors, especially water. I am a kayaker, rock climber, photographer, and SCUBA diver.
