(Please note that I am currently spending more time away from the computer than I have in the past and may not respond to emails quickly)

I am a computer scientist, music composer, and origami designer. My research areas include artificial intelligence, programming languages, computational linguistics, and generative models for music. I have previously done work in bioinformatics and geoinformatics, working with DNA and seismic data respectively. I regularly compose music, both with and without the aid of algorithms, and I always have some creative project or another going. In the last year I have published two books of my origami designs. I keep saltwater aquariums with hermit crabs, sea anemones, and corals. I recently moved out to rural upstate New York, where I’ve started raising chickens and trying to become more self-sufficient in various aspects of life.
