One devilishly handsom researcher in a suit and hipster looking glasses stands in front of an academic building. But not one of those buildings that's really pretty and steeped in history -- more like one that is more utilitarian than pretty and definitely doesn't have windows for the grad student offices.

I am a 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.

My technical skills include proficiency in programming languages such as Python, R, SQL, Bash, Groovy, Javascript, Rust, HTML, CSS, and LATEX, in addition to machine learning approaches, data analytic methods, simulation software, and high-performance computing environments.

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.
