About Me

I am a data scientist, currently with MeteoGroup. Through my career I have worked in fields spanning from ocean physics to transportation, energy, IoT, and beyond. I use a variety of machine learning techniques, spatio-temporal statistics, and numerical simulations to discover relationships in the underlying data and to build predictive models that can turn insight into actionable intelligence.

PhD, Oceanography 2013
My dissertation work investigated coastal ocean circulation in the Florida Big Bend region of the Northeast Gulf of Mexico. I used an understanding of physical transport processes in the ocean to identify pathways for onshore transport of gag grouper larvae. My primary advisors for this work were Dr. Eric P. Chassignet and Dr. Steven L. Morey.
