I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University, with Andrew Moore as my advisor. During my time at the AUTON lab at Carnegie Mellon, I learned the art of speeding up data mining algorithms. After finishing my Ph.D., I was a post-doc with Greg Cooper at the Department of Biomedical Informatics at the University of Pittsburgh. While working with Greg, I learned to appreciate Bayesian networks and Bayesian statistics.
