Office hours (in CMC 326) for Spring 2013:
My office hours will generally, but not always, be:
- Tuesdays: 1:15 - 2:30 pm
- Wednesdays: 3:10 - 4:20 pm
- Thursdays: 2:30 - 4:00 pm
Occasionally, meetings pop up for which I need to move, shorten, or cancel my office hours. I will generally keep this calendar updated. Check to make sure my office hours for the week haven't been moved. Thanks!
I am an associate professor of computer science at Carleton College, where I teach Introduction to Computer Science, Data Stuctures, Programming Languages, Artificial Intelligence, Database Systems, Data Mining, and other occasional courses.
My research focuses on solving machine learning and data mining problems, and collaborative human/computing systems. I'm currently working to understand the dynamics of people working with online collaborative communities such as Wikipedia. I've also been involved with the EDAM project (Exploratory Data Analysis and Monitoring), which is an interdisciplinary project involving computer scientists, chemists, and atmospheric scientists. Being able to help solve important real-world problems by applying computing-based data analysis techniques is really rewarding, and I'm definitively interested in continuing to work in this direction. I have also maintained a long term interest in support vector machines, clustering, and text mining.
