I am a member of the Computational Sciences and Engineering Division at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. I've worked with ORNL since 2000 designing and implementing multiple computer systems and applications for the Department of Homeland Security, Department of Defense, and other Federal Agencies.
My current research focus is on applying social computing principles to the design of information sharing systems. I am the lead designer and developer for ORNL’s Sensorpedia project. Other research interests include robotics, sensor networks, internet of things, user interface design, human-computer interaction, data visualization, and visual analytics. I am also leading a new ORNL STEM education effort, with a goal of using the laboratory's research to inspire the next generation of scientists and researchers.
