I am a postdoctoral fellow at CSU in the math department. I am working with the Data Science Research Institute to help researchers fine tune their questions and form new collaborations. I am also working with and learning about Veterinary health records.

I just received my PhD from the University of Colorado Anschutz medical school in computational biosciences. My research sought to explore the state of known unknowns or known gaps in our current scientific knowledge. I did so by revealing and exploring such statements from the scientific literature such as controversies, future work, and hypotheses. I created a taxonomy of how these are discussed, automated the identification of such statements, and then created a knowledge-base (an ignorance-base) to discover new connections based on such statements. I did all of this in the prenatal nutrition field and found novel connections between vitamin D and brain development. I believe that this work generalizes beyond that field though.
