Data Explorer + Flutist + Knowledge Hunter


I'm an applied machine learning researcher and data scientist with specialties in graph analysis and relational learning.
I like to play with data, especially in domains that have been thus far underserved by machine learning.

Currently based in Northern New Mexico, I earned my Masters in computer science from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and did my undergrad work just down the road at Amherst College. I almost became a professional musician, but opted for computer science and physics instead. In my spare time I enjoy camping, hiking, cooking, playing music, Lindy Hopping, and trying to belly dance.

I prefer my cheeseburgers with green chile.

Music

I play flute and piccolo, among other instruments.

I also enjoy arranging music for chamber ensembles, and teaching lessons (contact me if you are looking for a teacher!).

I organize and play with the Los Alamos Flutes, a flute choir based in Los Alamos, NM. You can find more information about us on our website.

You can also find me playing with the Los Alamos Community Winds, particularly on piccolo in the summer.
