My doctoral work was with
Mark Craven, developing
algorithms for the EDGE
project. We developed machine learning methods to discriminate toxins
based on gene expression levels. The ultimate goal of the EDGE project
is to make the analysis of industrial chemicals faster, cheaper, and more
accurate. My dissertation is here.
The source code for tools I've written for scientific computation
in Java are available
part of my work with time series analysis.
I'm from the state of Oregon in the U.S., though I was raised up
and down the Pacific coast. I earned my B.A. in Computer
Science/Mathematics (combined major) and Physics with Honors from Lewis & Clark College in 1999,
and my M.S. in Computer Science from the University of Wisconsin in 2002.
I don't teach at present, though I'm working on a Delta teaching certificate to
supplement my Ph.D. In addition to extra teaching classes, I'm working
on an Astronomy teaching program called cSky.
