I’m a computer scientist with over a decade of experience using machine learning, artificial intelligence, data mining, distributed systems, and modeling to generate knowledge from data and tools to leverage it. I’m passionate about applying this knowledge across a great variety of fields and different problems.

Since 2015 I’ve been working with an amazing group of data scientists and engineers at Miner & Kasch, where we solve data science and artificial intelligence challenges with businesses across the world ranging from start-ups to fortune 20 companies. 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). I launched my path of applying data science to interdisciplinary work during my B.S. in Data Science at the College of Charleston, where I became the program’s inaugural graduate in 2007.

I grew up in Bavaria, Germany and became a US citizen in 2014 after having lived in the US for over a decade. I spend a lot of my free time training  Muay Thai and engaging in social and intellectual activities related to serving as Vice President to the Maryland Objectivists Society.
