Office hours for Winter 2014:
Occasionally, meetings pop up for which I need to move, shorten, or cancel my office hours. I will generally keep this calendar updated. Use this calendar as a primary basis to see when my office hours are. Thanks!
As a general principle, my office hours will generally, but not always, be:
- Tuesdays: 3:45 pm - 4:45 pm in Boliou 160
- Wednesdays: 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm in Boliou 160
- Thursdays: 10 am - 11 am in CMC 326
- Fridays: 2:30 pm - 3:25 pm in CMC 326
Half of my office hours are in the sculpture/robotics studio in Boliou, and the other half are in my my office at the CMC; I'm happy to meet students from either of my classes in either location.
I am a 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. 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.
