I am an assistant professor of Computer Science at Colorado School of Mines with a joint appointment at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. I work at the intersection of databases, systems, information modeling, data science, the built environment and the Internet of Things. My research interests are broadly in designing, building and deploying systems that enable sustainable practices by making data easier to discover, manage and leverage. I am also interested in novel datasets or applications of data that motivate new data management techniques and abstractions.

I am looking for PhD, Masters and undergraduate students who are interested in research. If you are a prospective PhD or Masters student, please send me a descriptive and specific email introducing yourself and your research interests along with your current resume or CV. If you are a current student at Mines, feel free to drop by my office.
