My role at IBM Research:
I'm here to help make IBM Research visible to computer science students in university Ph.D. programs. I do this largely by working with a team of IBM computer scientists that developed the Researcher self-publishing tool in their free time.
Researcher is a simple way for IBM researchers to produce a personal, project, group or research area (Professional Interest Community, or "PIC") page. It gives you a blank-page template where you can create as intricate or as basic a page as you like. One of the nicest features is the publication aggregator, which lets researchers query Google Scholar or Microsoft Academic for their publications and then organizes them into a single, cross-indexed list.
Here's one way you can use a Researcher personal page link to publicize your work at IBM Research. Note where we have used the Researcher url.
Recently, I hosted an audio podcast called Inside IBM Research (Soundcloud) The program featured short conversations with IBM researchers who used their skills to solve real-world problems (poverty, access to education, economic and political transparency, etc.)
Outside of IBM, I contribute articles to various publications. One of my favorite articles appears in The Forward: The Mystery Behind the Lost Books of a Cherished Lublin Yeshiva
I contribute book reviews to HeadButler, a culture website run by Jesse Kornbluth. My most recent review is of Philip Roth's The Plot Against America.
I have reviewed books for The New York Times, Newsday, The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Chicago Tribune, The Plain Dealer and many other newspapers.
I now write for a business magazine called B-Tank (paper publication only). Some of my recent cover stories:
My formal education:
