I am a former neuroscientist and educator who served both District of Columbia and Montgomery County. Most recently, I have spent the last five years working as a data scientist, machine learning researcher, and software engineer working across national security, finance, hospitality and security domains.
Along the way I was privileged to work with Dr. Eric Laber at North Carolina State University’s Department of Statistics.
I am now serving as a researcher within the Advanced Security Initiatives Group (ASIG) within Cisco’s Security and Trust Organization. Here I have had the pleasure to work on myriad projects that afford me the opportunity to apply and to learn new techniques in optimization, statistics and mathematics. Among these are:
- Developing Bayesian estimation with applications to both fraud and change point detection in time series.
- Building and evaluating deep learning NLP models for customized search and classification.
- Formulating and implementing propensity scoring methods and matching heuristics in order to capture average treatment effects from different treatment regimens.
- Developing mixed effects models in order to account for missing data and variability in data collection
- Applying survival analysis in order to predict when user engagement decline.
- Applying distributed computing and data parallelism to device telemetry in order to detect anomalies in both time and space.
