I am an Associate Professor in the Computer Science Department at the US Naval Academy.
I am interested in the challenges raised by the dramatic increase in data availability, collection, and storage. One of my research focuses is on developing and implementing new algorithms and methods for storing, organizing, and finding information in dynamic, large, decentralized systems. My work on Rya, now an open source project at the Apache Software Foundation, falls in this category. I'm also interested in cybersecurity and data science.
