I am a civilian employee of the U.S. Department of Navy, stationed at the Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division. The research I perform with the Department of Navy falls into three roles: Branch Manager, Project Leader, and Research Scientist. As Head of the Applied Sensing and Processing Branch, I direct the development of technological capabilities for enhanced intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR), improving the state-of-the-art in unmanned systems technology. As a Project Leader, I drive the creation and development of Future Naval Capabilities that leverage machine learning and artifical intelligence to provide innovative solutions for the problems facing the fleet. As a Research Scientist in my own right, I create cutting-edge algorithms for swarm robotics using statistical methods, optimization, distributed algorithms, and optimal mass transport metrics. In all of these roles, I develop external technical collaborations, lead high-performing teams, and work assiduously to push the boundaries of strategic thinking to ensure dominance in the littoral battlespace.

Much of my research work for the Department of Navy is not authorized for public release. What I can share appears below. If you have questions about research projects not appearing here, reach out to me via:
