About Charlie

I'm a data scientist who specializes in natural language processing (NLP) and advanced analytics on unstructured text. I'm the creator of an open source software package for document geotagging and geoparsing that employs context-based geographic entity resolution. I have an MS in Computer Science and am currently a PhD candidate, with both degrees focused on NLP. I've authored over a dozen academic publications in peer-reviewed journals and research conference proceedings. My interests include information extraction, knowledge representation, machine learning, natural language generation, geospatial analysis, and open source software development. Prior to my current position, I worked with the Artificial Intelligence Group at Raytheon BBN Technologies, and was a Communications & Computer Systems officer in the United States Air Force. As an undergraduate, I received a Blackfriars Fellowship to attend the University of Oxford.

I've got a strong entrepreneurial streak and I've participated in a couple of startups at different stages in a technical advisory role. Please contact me if you're looking for a technical advisor to help guide you in the areas of data science, NLP, big data, and text analytics.
