Hello and welcome to my place on the interwebs!


In addition to making passibly good websites, I develop novel privacy and security interfaces for everyone to use (and on the side make some IoT and wearable devices for humans and animals). My major focus is creating interactive agents who will help protect its users from security threats on the internet while also teaching them how and why to protect their privacy on the internet.

Security

Develop novel interactions that improve user security awareness and practices.

Privacy

Create tools that allow a user to be reasonably sure about his or her privacy on the internet.

Artificial Intelligence

Employ artificial intelligence to enable delightful and memorable interactions between users and interactive agents.

Machine Learning

Use machine learning to analyze the behaviors of users and provide a more natural and functional interactive agent experience.

Embedded Systems

I create new devices to meet the needs of problems I aim to solve.

Dog Vocalization Classifier

Classifier used to determine the inner state of domestic dogs.

Animal Interaction Toolkit

User interface toolkit specifically designed for animal-computer interaction applications.

Content-based Audio Retrieval

Using Machine Hearing to retrieve audio documents from unstructured datasets.

Botvoyage

AI agent using reinforcement learning to plan a travel itinerary based on traveller type.

Instrumented Collar

Specially designed animal collar that collects movement and vocalization data, optimized for all-day wear.
