I am a mathematician, statistician, project leader and a member of the Applied Statistics group. Prior to joining LLNL as staff member, I worked in industry for several years. Some notable research topics I worked on within industry include the application of machine learning and advanced statistical modeling towards problems in underwater acoustics, anomalous activity detection and multi-sensor detection/tracking/classification. I obtained my Ph.D. in Mathematics at Virginia Tech under the supervision of Joseph Ball.
My current projects center on the development of algorithmic approaches for exploitation of multi-modal imagery and machine learning algorithms that use the laboratory's high performance computers to tackle problems on massive data sets.
Statistical machine learning, classification anomaly detection, signal and image processing, statistical modeling, inference and data mining.
