I am a research programmer/analyst in the Department of Computer Science at Cornell University, IT and program coordinator for the Cornell University AI for Science Institute (CUAISci) and the Institute for Computational Sustainability (ICS), and project coordinator and IT manager for the Computational Sustainability Network (CompSustNet). I received a master's degree in computer science from Cornell, with a focus on AI, ML, and HPC. I develop software and computational methods, and prepare data sets, for a variety of scientific applications related to sustainability. I've worked on a variety of projects, including the interpretation of crystal structure data from materials science experiments looking for battery and fuel cell catalysts, and solar fuels; understanding movement patterns of pastoralists in East Africa, their water and forage resource use, and estimation of related environmental conditions from satellite imagery; and the design of wildlife conservation corridors. I am particularly interested in applications related to renewable energy and power systems.

Prior Work

Previously, I worked with the outreach team at the Cornell Theory Center (now the Center for Advanced Computing), primarily on the SciCentr program, which developed interactive educational content and activities using a 3D multi-user virtual enviroment based on ActiveWorlds. This program was later directly by the Greater Southern Tier BOCES.
