ABOUT ME

For the past seven years, I have developed machine learning algorithms to work with life sciences, medical and textual data.

My original training was as a physicist focusing on remote sensing of planets at NASA-Goddard and University of Maryland, College Park where I obtained my Ph.D. I transitioned into life sciences for a short time at NIH before pursuing a career in business as an IT and senior executive and eventually as a consultant. 

Eight years ago, I began transitioning back towards science and math as a consultant. My first work was in computational linguistics, calculating what science documents were about. I realized a couple of years ago that the same concepts could be applied to life sciences data so I began using it to analyze human microbiome data. I had the opportunity to give a talk at Drexel University School of Medicine Department of Microbiology and Immunology. On the basis of my presentation, I was asked to join the research group -- sans publications. Who knew this was possible?

Today, my work is focused almost entirely on math and science both as a consultant and an Adjunct Professor at Drexel University.
