I’ve been working on a career combining scenario modeling with machine learning. I have experience in the practical problem of managing, processing, and representing large volumes of data. I'm very interested in problems in the long-term risks in infrastructure: manufacturing, transportation, energy, and agriculture. I hope to contribute to technologies leading to the more effective governance of risk.

** Specialties **

Understanding of temporal processes: temporal logic, time-series statistics, online machine-learning, causal processes, and systems analysis.

Software: algorithm design, software engineering, and data modeling.

Representing information: through prose, diagrams, schedules, maps, information visualizations, blueprints, probabilistic models, simulations, data structures, databases, and domain-specific programming languages.

Manufacturing: production planning, mechatronics, and manufacturing processes.
