Professional and Academic

I'm a Software Engineer at Google, in the Kirkland, WA office. Currently I work on infrastructure for Google's social products (Google+, Contacts, Profiles, etc.)--and Java libraries (mostly JUNG--see below).

Prior to joining Google, I was a PhD candidate at the University of California, Irvine, studying machine learning and data mining on social network data, with an emphasis on temporally evolving networks; and an Applied Researcher at Microsoft, working on various "safety"-related problems: spam, phishing, botnets, filtering, etc.



In my copious free time, I hang out with my family and friends, play French horn, sing bass-baritoneread and write compulsively, bicycle, cross-country ski, swim, and play soccer, frisbee, and addictive computer games. (This list would be longer but for the existence of the last item.)
