 I am from Avon Lake, Ohio (near Cleveland). I am an avid Cleveland sports fan and love skiing and traveling. I went to the University of Dayton and played football there for four years while studying mechanical engineering and received masters in Renewable Energy Systems in my fifth year. My masters graduate research was heavily influenced by data science where I began to learn on my own. I worked for Emerson for a year doing data science work before I realized a formal data science education would be valuable. I came to UTK in the Bredesen Center program. The flexibility in the program to choose a course-load that best suited me was one of the best parts of the early parts of the program. I am now doing research full time on urban-scale building energy modeling leveraging supercomputers at ORNL to generate and simulate hundreds of thousands to millions of building energy models.
