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 and evolution 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 also run a research blog where I write about my research, data science, 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.
If you'd like to talk research, AI, or whatever else, I'm just an email away.
