Father to Peter, Alex, and Catherine; husband to Terri; software developer and computer enthusiast. In 2009 I completed my doctorate in computer science at MIT CSAIL and since then I've worked as a software engineer in Product Search Relevance for Amazon's search subsidiary A9.

From 2006 to 2008 I worked on web technologies for Novell including: the Hula mail and calendar server; Mockingbird, a Firefox extension that emulated Internet Explorer APIs and behaviors to support legacy web applications; and a Firefox extension that provided support for MHTML web archives.

Research projects I've worked on include: the Natural Log mathematical handwriting recognition engine; the Awarenex and Lilsys telepresence and awareness systems. My graduate research was in active duplicate detection with Bayesian nonparametric models.
