I bring substantial industry experience into the classroom. I was the Chief Data Scientist, part of the special projects group, at the iconic software developer Wolfram Research and founded a tech company called BlinkSecure in 2012, where I served as Chief Technology Officer, while also getting my Ph.D. in Computer Science. I like to code for fun and collaborate with fellow entrepreneurs to find or attempt to find the next big thing in data and technology that will transform and touch people's lives. I had a great experience founding a startup to solve the problem of memorizing many passwords via a small chip that does automatic authentication. I enjoy running, walking and hiking. I am obsessed with local farms, sustainable agriculture and general education of where our food is coming from. This year I will be with the Champlain team at the Dragon Boat Festival and VT Corp Cup race.
