Basics

I am a member of the research staff at the Institute for Defense Analyses (IDA), a federally-funded think tank in the Washington D.C. metro area. My research broadly focuses on the study of computational methods to extract meaning from raw data and includes the areas of data mining, network science (e.g., social network analysis), natural language processing, machine learning, and social computing. I completed a Ph.D. in Computer Science at the Laboratory for Computational Population Biology, which is within the Department of Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). Here is a link to a brief CV.
