I'm a mathematician from Colorado. I live and work in London.
I'm the Director of Data Science at NBCUniversal International. I lead my team in several predictive analytics, machine learning, and data mining projects across film, television, home entertainment, et cetera.
I'm also a Ph.D. researcher in pure mathematics at Queen Mary University of London. In particular, I study the noncommutative geometry of quantum groups over finite fields.

I'm a lover of learning, not for its own sake, but as a social activity. I'd like to invite anyone keen on studying or working together to get in touch, especially if you have any interests that match mine:
Quantum groups, Grothendieck-Teichmüller groups, noncommutative geometry, Bost-Connes systems, machine learning, statistical modeling & forecasting.
Maths: algebraic geometry, differential geometry & topology, riemannian geometry, class field theory, anabelian geometry, elliptic curves, and more...
Physics: classical mechanics, electricity & magnetism, quantum field theory, statistical mechanics, and more...
Computer Science: programming language theory, functional programming languages (haskell, erlang in particular), systems programming (c and go in particular), purely functional data structures, more data structures and algorithms, compile design, machine learning and more...
