I am a post-doc at Los Alamos National Laboratory in the Center for Nonlinear Studies. My current work focuses on developing interpretable unsupervised machine learning for application in the climate sciences. In particular, I work on the theory of tensor factorizations and explainable large-scale clustering.
My PhD training is in operator algebras and operator theory. My thesis initiated the study of operator algebras modeling the dynamics of Hilbert space frames. These objects could be thought of as a generalization of representations of graph C*-algebras. I am also interested in connections the between single operator theory and machine learning.

This work aims to determine climate biomes directly from data, determine where they are changing, and assign a value of trust to our classification.
This work focuses on operator algebras that arise from directed graphs and frame theory.
The goal of this work is to discover and analyze climatic signatures within E3SM MPAS-O data of the Southern Ocean.
In this work, we attempt to understand the mathematical connections between different types of tensor factorizations.
