I recently obtained my Ph.D. in Statistics from Florida State University. I received the B.S. and M.S. degrees from Colorado State University, Fort Collins, in 2007 and 2009, respectively, both in electrical engineering, with an emphasis on statistical signal processing. Currently, I am Principal Member of the Technical Staff at Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, NM.

My main interest lies in the area of statistical image understanding with a focus on object classification. My other research interests include digital signal/image processing, target detection, classification, feature extraction methods, and statistical learning methods.
