I am a PhD student in Computer Science at the University of Kentucky, working under the supervision of my advisor, Dr. Nathan Jacobs. My research interests involve computer vision and machine learning; specifically using deep learning to make sense of geo-temporal patterns in large scale collections of photographs.
This summer, I will be visiting Oak Ridge National Labs as an ASTRO Graduate Student Researcher in their National Security Emerging Technologies Division.
I received my Bachelors degree from the University of Kentucky in May 2016, double majoring in Computer Science and Mathematics. During this time I worked as an Undergraduate Research Assistant to Dr. Jacobs, from January 2014 to May 2016. In the summer of 2014 I worked at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte under the direction of Dr. Richard Souvenir, as part of an NSF Research Experience for Undergraduates.
I live in Lexington, KY with my wife Abbie, our two dogs Tesla and Hopper, and our cat Jellybean.
