Technical Interests


AI
Software
Data

I build end-to-end systems: software, databases, algorithms, and user interfaces (e.g. Connect). My methods of choice including deep- and reinforcement learning, but I'm not shy to use regression when that's the best tool for the job. I also collect, manage, and study several 'Big Data' sets.



Application Interests

Health
Social
Behavior

I am interested in using technology to predict adverse health and behavioral outcomes before they happen. I'm also interested in understanding how social networks and institutions can be leveraged to prevent negative outcomes, once they are detected.



Hobbies

Bread
Poetry
Ceramics
It is said that a great treasure lies at the roof of the mount, one with trials and tests, that few can surmount. And to add to this task you are faced with a storm, with droplets of water attacking in swarm. And out the glass window you look and you ponder, the value of treasures on the mountain off yonder. Do not disdain a walk in the rain, for in the unknown you have much to gain. Embrace the unknown and reflect on the mystery, as years of your life, retreat into history. Feel the wet stones beneath your feet, as you fight off the cold with passion's heat. And continue your climb, ever on higher, for if you fear not, then you shall you tire. In the heart if the storm you will think yourself lost, but fear - for discovery - is such a small cost! And above the storm cloud, you will climb to the top, and perhaps you find that the treasure you sought, was the journey itself, and all that it taught.

I bake bread from four simple ingredients (flour, salt, water, yeast) and marvel at the incredible variety of tastes and textures that are produced. I write poetry to help me remember important experiences I've had. I also enjoy ceremics, which helps me see beauty in imperfection.
