I am currently the Data Science Task Manager and Associate Scientist at UARC, University of California Santa Cruz working in the Data Sciences group at NASA Ames Research Center, California. Most of my current research effort is directed towards developing large scale data mining and machine learning algorithms to solve problems in the earth sciences, aviation safety, and graph structure analysis.
