I am a first year PhD student in Computer Science at JHU and a Whiting Payback Fellow. I did my undergraduate work at Carnegie Mellon University where I got at BS in Statistics and Information Systems with a minor in Computer Science. In the Fall 2011 I had a lot of fun being a teaching assistant for the Machine Learning course at Hopkins. In my spare time I enjoy both road and mountain biking (and occasionally touring).
I am just getting started with my research here at Hopkins, so nothing much to report there. Previously I have worked on machine learning methods for recovering files from damaged hard drives and a news recommendation system. Here is a list of interesting words and phrases: Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, Randomized Algorithms, Efficient Indexing, Information Retrieval, Information Extraction, Distributional Semantics, Nonparametric Methods, SVMs, Structured Prediction, Dynamic Programming.
