About me

I'm working on game AI (Artificial Intelligence) under the supervision of Dr. Santiago Ontañón Villar. Some of the topics that I'm interested are machine learning, Learning from Demonstration, feature selection, feature construction, and structured data. I received a B.S. in Computer Science from Clarion University in 2013 and a B.A. in Philosophy, also from Clarion University in 2013. I also unofficially have my M.S. in Computer Science from Drexel University (I have fulfilled the requirements, just waiting for the paperwork to clear).
