About Me

I am a postdoc in computer science at Oregon State University. My research investigates fundamental problems in machine learning, networks, and applied math motivated by large-scale environmental data, dynamic ecological processes, the web, and other real world phenomena. My recent work focuses on algorithms for inference and optimization in large probabilistic models.
I work with Thomas G. Dietterich at OSU and with David Winkler, an ecologist at Cornell. My postdoctoral fellowship was awarded by the National Science Foundation in Bioinformatics. I received my Ph.D. in computer science from Cornell Univeristy under the supervision John Hopcroft.
