I am a Senior Research Scientist and Project Manager at CUBRC Inc. where I work in the Information Exploitation Sector. I was an NSF Graduate Research Fellow and SUNY Chancellors award winner, and have multiple awards and publications relating to my work in disaster relief, emergency management, and counter-terrorism. My work has been supported by several agencies including the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS). My current interests are in healthcare and defense, with a focus on system integration to perform large-scale data analysis, modeling, and simulation. I lead the multi-disciplinary Healthcare Informatics Team at CUBRC, an initiative to transition data storage and analytics technologies, originally developed for the U.S. Government, into the healthcare space. I am a Research Assistant Faculty at University at Buffalo and also teach at Buffalo State in a new master program in Data Science. Finally, I serve on the board of Global Biotechnology and Cancer Therapeutics (GBCT) for Roswell Cancer Institute.
