SUMMARY

I delve into opportunities that require creative solutions to challenging and seemingly impossible analytical problems. I enjoy researching cutting edge data science and best practices to achieve this. I am specifically familiar with analytics and machine learning as applied to bioinformatics, NLP, artificial intelligence, business intelligence, and prediction. I hold a Masters in Science from the University of Washington in Computational Linguistics. Since completing my Masters I have taken coursework in big data and bioinformatics.

• Languages: Java, C++

• Scripting and Markup: Python, R, HTML/CSS/JavaScript/jQuery, ReactJS, django, XML, MD

• Databases: MongoDB/NoSQL, MySQL, PHP, PostgreSQL, GraphQL

• Big Data/Cloud Computing Frameworks: Hadoop, Spark, MapReduce, AWS

• IDEs: PyCharm, Eclipse, Atom

• Operating Systems: Windows, Linux (Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, CentOS), VirtualBox

• Version Control: git, svn, Docker, Vagrant

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

PIERCE COUNTY, TRANSPORTATION PLANNER

JUNE 2013 – SEPTEMBER 2016

Within Pierce County's Transportation Planning Section I built predictive analytics models, managed large datasets, performed geospatial analysis, executed work programs, and built web applications.

I developed the Land Use Allocation model for the 2015 Comprehensive Plan Update. The model uses features selected from employment and existing land use data to replicably predict where and how land use will change in the future. The prediction is based on clustering machine learning algorithms and Bayesian statistics. The model built using open source libraries and custom code in python. Data visualization was developed with both ArcGIS and the R programming language.

My most recent assignment involved creating a transit system for Joint Base Lewis-McChord. I developed the routes and stops with predictive analytics that relied upon traffic patterns, land use, employment, surveys, and strategic partnerships. Within a year of operating the system had exceeded ridership expectations by more than double. Part of the success was linking the analytics, planning, and operations software together to automate the construction and maintenance of a website (5,000 monthly views) and publish our system to OneBusAway for users to view service in real-time. In September 2016 the program now called GO Lewis- McChord received a Vision 2040 award from the Puget Sound Regional Council which was accepted by the Pierce County Executive, Joint Base Garrison Commander, Pierce Transit, and Intercity Transit.

EDUCATION

UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON, MASTERS OF SCIENCE IN COMPUTATIONAL LINGUISTICS, 3.92 GPA SEPTEMBER 2014 – MARCH 2016

Published thesis: “Automating Gloss Mapping for Inferring Grammatical Properties” which utilized machine learning to correct systemic data errors in natural language data. A copy may be obtained at: https://digital.lib.washington.edu/researchworks/handle/1773/35604. The code and test suite are available on GitHub.

Post graduation work: “Inferring Case Systems from IGT: Impacts and Detection of Variable Glossing Practices” as part of ComputEL-2 and published by ACL which furthered the work of my thesis by producing a more scalable and robust methodology that can incorporate neural networks. A copy may be obtained at: http://altlab.artsrn.ualberta.ca/wp- content/uploads/2017/03/CEL2_6.pdf.

Coursework focused on software development for machine learning, natural language processing (POS tagging, Markov models, sentiment analysis, information extraction, summarization, parsing, classification, regression, and semantics), statistical inference, speech recognition, and artificial intelligence.

Program tested for high-level programming, Unix/Linux, statistics, computational theory, linguistic theory, and data structures & algorithms. UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON TACOMA, BACHELOR OF ARTS IN BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION, CUM LAUDE SEPTEMBER 2010 – JUNE 2013

Minors and/or certificates in Law and Policy, Environmental Studies, Environmental Law, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and Economics.

Coursework focused on strategic management, organizational development, environmental and urban regulation, environmental science, GIS, and software programming.
