I'm a Senior Data Scientist at Netflix, where I work within Science & Algorithms. This site focuses on my academic work. Prior to joining Netflix, I was a James S. McDonnell Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow in Complex Systems in the Department of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Washington.
See my Research Interests for more information.
Background: I did research in microfluidics, nonlinear dynamics of complex fluids, and classical field theory as an undergraduate. I worked in R&D to develop precision timing/navigation systems before starting graduate school. My Ph.D was in Applied Mathematics at Harvard's School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, where I was advised by Peter Huybers. I have a B.A. in Physics from Reed College.
