One of my hobbies is algorithmic animation. The piece above is one of my creations. It's called "Noise Portrait," since the basic algorithm behind it is driven by Perlin noise. You can view the source code here, and learn more about it here.

I'm a doctoral candidate in the University of Maryland's Department of Computer Science. That's where you can find my main web presence. There's information about my dissertation research (currently focusing on neural network models of cognitive control), the work I do with the Center for Complexity in Business, copies of my published papers, my CV, and info about what I'm enjoying when I'm not doing AI research. You can also take a look at my blog, Cafe Turing.

Besides my dissertation work, I'm interested in art (especially algorithmic art, animation and sculpture) and economics. I spend most of my time outside the lab reading, making, and playing with Bonnie, my two year old Westie.
