Data Science Manager

CliftonLarsonAllen LLP


My research interests include high-dimensional analysis, low-rank detection, subspace clustering, and machine learning. I have experience with traditional statistical approaches to problems such as linear/non-linear regression and various machine learning/artificial intelligence methods. In conjunction with my statistical expertise, I worked as a project engineer for pharmaceutical settings and a professional software position. In addition, I enjoy spending time with my family, training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and biking.
