Description

I completed my Master's degree in Information Science from the School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. My master's thesis was on the evaluation of two different projection or dimensionality reduction techniques for use in document clustering: Latent Semantic Analysis and Independent Component Analysis. You can see a bit more about what I did while at UNC on my old home page.

Prior to my time at UNC, I worked as a software developer at a large telecommunications company and a large "global services" company on a project enabling VoiceXML services over the telecom network. I was laid-off in 2002 (along with most of the company), found myself back in school in 2003, and realized I really liked it.
