I studied physics at Penn State and the University of Maryland where I searched for neutrinos with the IceCube detector. It was in graduate school that I got the opportunity to help build the detector on location at the South Pole.
After earning a PhD, I worked at a small consultancy focused on the design and operation of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) systems.
At a company called Endgame, I created MalwareScore, a machine learning model that recognizes malicious programs. I also released an open source dataset called EMBER meant to spur research in the area. I maintained and extended those two projects through an acquisition by Elastic.
