I am a computer scientist that works at the intersection of machine learning, data mining, and spatio-temporal data analytics, or broadly speaking, spatio-temporal data mining. I am passionate about creating actionable knowledge from data, especially in socially relevant domains such as climate, cognitive neuroscience, and ecology. For the past three years I have been part of a growing interdisciplinary community working on novel algorithms to analyze large climate datasets -- known as Climate Informatics or (a subset of) Computational Sustainability (think bioinformatics back in the early 1990s). My current work is funded through a $10M/5 year grant from the US National Science Foundation's Expeditions in Computing Program. The Expeditions program is the single largest investment by the NSF in basic computer science research.
