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.
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.
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.
