I’m a student at Johns Hopkins University pursuing my Masters in Computer Science with a focus in data science, artificial intelligence, and complex systems. My background is a T-shaped education, seeking breadth in domain knowledge that spans biological systems to social systems, and depth of expertise in the computational methods necessary to understand their complexity.
My interest in computer science focuses on computation modeled on biology – those algorithms influenced by evolution, intelligence, social behavior and distributed adaptive systems – and their application towards studying the very phenomena that inspire them. Data science combines many of these algorithms with the retrieval, processing, analysis, visualization and communication of data in order to derive useful information. Data intelligence is the art of transforming data into knowledge that informs intelligent thought.
