Current research (Yale): since the spring of '09, my research under the direction of my advisor, Paul Hudak, has involved modelig the compositional process through a combination of programming languages, machine learning, music theory, and linguistics. I am particularly interested in the relationship between music and language and have been exploring the use of grammars in music generation.

Previous research and academic experience (SMU): my background prior to coming to Yale was in computer science and environmental science. My research involved visualization of DNA/RNA and seismic data as well as event cluster detection in seismic data.
