I am a professor of computer science at Colorado State University. I am also a faculty member of CSU's School of Biomedical Engineering, Graduate Degree Program in Ecology and the Molecular, Cellular, and Integrative Neurosciences Program. I graduated with a Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, in 1986, advised by Andy Barto, and worked at GTE Laboratories in Waltham, MA, until I arrived at CSU in 1991. I teach graduate courses in machine learning and undergraduate courses in programming, data structures, and graphics. My research is in machine learning with a focus on reinforcement learning, EEG pattern recognition, and neural networks. I love the challenge of finding patterns in data for prediction, classification, and control. Please contact me if you are interested in studying or doing research in machine learning at CSU, or if you have interesting data or problems you would like to discuss.
