I am a Ph.D. in Communication and Senior Member of Technical Staff at Sandia National Laboratories. I have worked at the laboratory since 2019, starting as a Graduate Technical Intern in Energy and Water Systems Integration, and later joined Machine Intelligence and Visualization as a postdoc.
Among other work, I have led the development and testing of a new network layout algorithm and analytic measure for testing communicative vibration theory and the prediction of social group stability, established a natural language processing pipeline incorporating multiple methods, and designed and validated agent-based models of disinformation flow. In addition to this work, I have conducted research which includes game theoretic network experiments and psychophysiological measures. This work has been presented at numerous project funding meetings, symposia, and scientific conferences.
I hold a Ph.D. and M.A. in Communication from Ohio State University, where I was a member of the Communication and Cognitive Systems Lab. My Bachelor's degree is also in Communication from the University of Missouri - Columbia. I have published numerous peer-reviewed articles in top communication, psychology, sociology, and general scientific journals. For more detailed information, please see my CV.
