My interests lay the intersection of machine learning and disaster response and most recently I have worked with the CDC and the WHO in development of machine learning and data management systems to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
I grew up in Las Vegas and I enjoy running, hiking, spending time outdoors and in my spare time I am also an Instrument Rated Private Pilot, Advanced EMT, and a Firefighter. I love working with my hands and learning new skills which I can apply in new ways.
I graduated from Carnegie Mellon with a Masters of Language Technologies. My educational background is in NLP and in my graduate studies I worked with Bosch GmbH, DARPA, and Boeing on question answering and search systems.Download CV
