Education: PhD Student, Computer Science Texas A&M University, College Station, TX Field: Human-Computer Systems and Information Advisor: Dr. Frank Shipman Bachelors of Science, Computer Science Belmont University, Nashville, TN Graduation: May 2013 Minor: Mathematics Research: Graduate Research Assistant,   September 2014 – Present Texas A&M University, College Station, TX Pursuing continued development of a data environment for heterogeneous data management, analysis, and visualization under advisor Dr. Frank Shipman. Current work involves supporting collaborative interaction between researchers as well as between researcher and system via a mixed initiative intelligent agent. Concurrent work includes incorporating data into the data environment from the domain of Emergency Informatics in conjunction with the robotics lab of Dr. Robin Murphy. Summer Research Intern,   June 2012 – August 2012 University of South Florida, Tampa, FL. Performed research under Oscar D. Lara and Dr. Miguel Labrador on human activity recognition using wearable sensors connected to an Android-enabled device via Bluetooth. Collected and analyzed data in an effort to find effective methods for differentiating between common human activities using personal vital signs and accelerometer data. The research was funded by NSF for the summer REU program. Undergraduate Researcher,   August 2011 – May 2012 Belmont University, Nashville, TN Conducted research under the guidance of Dr. William H. Hooper to explore effective search strategies for a variation on the classic fifteen puzzle. Explored heuristics based on those successful for the fifteen puzzle using the A* search algorithm implemented in Java. Publications/Presentations: U. Karadkar, K. Wickett, R. Furuta, M. Parikh, J.
