Welcome! I graduated from the PhD program in Civil & Environmental Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University in 2011.  My doctoral dissertation (available here) addressed the problem of information management in engineering design projects and presented a research framework for assessing the extent of successful collaboration in design teams.

In the recent past, I have worked on modeling design communication computationally and statistically for supporting decision-making. My research has brought together computational linguistics, quantitative modeling and machine learning to address problems of assessment, learning and inference. The results have been used in decision support applications (e.g., educational assessment, information extraction and computer-supported collaborative learning) and have also served scientific discovery wherever text serves as data (e.g., sociolinguistics and political science).

As of 2013, I am a scientist at the Sanborn Map Company in Colorado Springs. I coordinate Sanborn’s spatial modeling research initiative by utilizing the recent advances made in a variety of 3D technologies including laser scanning, photogrammetry and computer vision.
