I am a member of the research staff and Master Inventor exploring the frontiers of human-computer interaction at IBM Research--Almaden. My 40+ patents cover position tracking, user input, wireless communication, biometrics and encryption. I am interested in signal processing, machine learning, human/data interaction and visualization. Currently I'm working on modeling human personality and interaction based on mining social media. I also have a passion for STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math), special needs education and monitoring sea turtles.
