I recently completed my Ph.D. at the University of Wisconsin-Madison working with David Page and am currently looking for a research-oriented job in machine learning. I also received an M.S. in Computer Sciences in 2010 from University of Wisconsin-Madison. My undergraduate work was in computer science and music at Lawrence University where I received a B.A. in Math-Computer Science and B.M. in Bassoon Performance in 2008.
My research focuses on evaluation techniques for supervised machine learning and on statistical relational learning methods. I am particularly interested in thresholdless evaluation measures such as ROC curves, PR curves, and the areas under them. I also work with statistical relational learning methods to leverage electronic medical records for disease prediction.
When not spending too much time in front of a computer, I am usually playing bassoon with the Middleton Community Orchestra and assorted chamber ensembles, reading sci-fi/fantasy, or sleeping.
