Why data science? My first project post-graduation was helping a National Security client use data to explore avenues that adversaries could use to attack the U.S. transportation infrastructure, and assess our readiness for each possibility. In this capacity, I saw the power of data to make a major difference in the operations of an organization and specifically in how they carry out their mission. In an effort to continue raising the bar, I was always thinking about what else we could do to gain better insight. This is where I first encountered data science and became fascinated with its many applications.
Research and Career Interests: I am most interested in the tactical development, implementation, and maintenance of machine learning algorithms, including deep neural networks, designed to improve organizational efficiency and effectiveness.
