I am a mathematician and theoretical computer scientist in Booz Allen Hamilton, where I apply new and existing ideas in machine learning and social network analysis to create models, algorithms, and statistical techniques for analyzing international relations and geopolitical conflicts.

In addition to my work at Booz, I am a leader of EleutherAI, an online distributed research group. I am also a student in the College of Computing at the Georgia Institute of Technology where I am pursuing a Masters of Science in Computer Science and an organizer of the AI Village, a community of hackers and data scientists working to educate the world on the use and abuse of artificial intelligence in security and privacy.
