My main research focus is on data science at scale. My work includes data workflows, data fusion, analysis, and visualization on different platforms from web applications to high-performance computers. As a postdoc in the Computational Urban Sciences group, I work primarily with large geographic and urban data. You can learn more about my current work in the projects section.
I currently serve as Treasurer for the Oak Ridge Postdoctoral Association (ORPA). Last Fiscal Year, I was the Research Committee chair for ORPA. In this role, I organized multiple research seminars, created the new Your Science in a Nutshell (a workshop on science communication), and organized the Annual ORPA Research Symposium.
Before my time at ORNL, I was a postdoc in the Data Science at Scale group at Los Alamos National Laboratory where I worked on analyzing the connection between use of computational resources and cognitive value of the outcome by compressing image databases and evaluating the usability. I furthermore worked as a developer for MPAS-Ocean, the ocean component of the Energy Exascale Earth System Model (E3SM) project. During that time I extended multiple analysis members to enable the use of regional masks.
I completed my BSc (2009), MSc (2011), and PhD (2015) at the University of Kaiserslautern in Kaiserslautern, Germany. During my studies, I specialized in visualization, image processing, and computer vision. My minors were mathematics (BSc) and biology (MSc).
