Professional Background

For the most part, my professional experience has always been focused towards technology.  I have held a number of roles in technology including:

  • Research Assistant (machine learning)
  • Product Development Manager (Sprint Business – Sales and Marketing Support group)

Current Positions

I am currently an Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for Spektron Systems.  My duties range from administrative to technical.   I manage machine learning / data science projects using non-linear machine learning methods for building inferential and predictive models.  The application space is the discovery of new molecular/chemical entities as candidates for pushing towards drug development.

Educational Background

I received a BS in Computer Science from the University of Texas at Arlington in December 2009.  I started a BS-to-PhD program directly afterward.  My PhD will be in Computer Science with an emphasis on Machine Learning.  I am currently working on my dissertation research and am ABD (All But Dissertation).  I have taken a Leave of Absence from this work while I focus on Spektron.  My professional and academic fields intersect and I’m working on developing my thesis from my work here.  For now, you can view my coursework here.
