I’m a computer scientist with over a decade of experience using machine learning, artificial intelligence, data mining, big data tools and technologies, and modeling to generate knowledge from data and tools to leverage it. I work with a great group of people at Miner & Kasch – an artificial intelligence, data science, and big data platform architecture services company. On a day to day basis, I work closely with business stakeholders, data scientists, and platform engineers to execute solutions to advanced analytics problems. 

I received my Ph.D. (Dec 2012) and M.S. (2010) in Computer Science in the Artificial Intelligence group at the University of Maryland (UMD), advised by Dana Nau and Michele Gelfand. I launched my path of applying data science to interdisciplinary work during under Bill Manaris during my B.S. in Data Science at the College of Charleston (2007).

I grew up in Bavaria, Germany and became a US citizen after having lived in the US for over a decade.
