Professional background

I am currently working as a Machine Learning Engineer at OpenSesame. Previously, I worked on the Data Exploration team and the Applied Intelligence Solution team at New Relic.

In a previous life, I was a graduate research assistant at Washington State University Vancouver with Dr. Bala Krishnamoorthy. During this time, I built numerous libraries for Topological Data Analysis. Each of these are curated under the ubrella of the Scikit-TDA project, of which I was a founding member.

In 2015, I received a bachelors in Mathematics from University of Hawai’i Manoa where I worked with Dr. Yuriy Mileyko characterizing minute shape change of MRI and with Dr. Brian Bingham developing environmental and robotic control simulations.

Outside of work, I enjoy cross-country skiing, rock climbing, and homemade pizza.
