Hi there! Welcome to my home page. I am a fourth-year Computer Science & Engineering Ph.D. candidate at Michigan State University working in Dr. Chris Adami's research lab.
I research artificial intelligence, evolution, and collective behavior using artificial life and digital evolution as research tools. As such, I spend most of my time studying intelligent animal behaviors, such as decision-making and cooperation, to figure out how we can reproduce those intelligent behaviors in a machine.
I run a research blog where I write about my research, scientific computing, and data visualization. I regularly travel to teach researchers scientific computing skills at Software Carpentry workshops, and I'm always looking for venues to visit and talk about my ongoing research and published work.
If you'd like to talk research, scientific computing, or whatever else, I'm just an email away.
