I am a Principal Research Staff Member in the Center for Computational and Statistical Learning at IBM's T.J. Watson Research Center.  From 1996-2011 I worked in the speech recognition area.

Research Interests
My current focus is on satellite imagery, basic computer vision, agriculture, machine learning, matrix function optimization and anything to do with non-smooth optimization. Here are some selected talks I have given at IBM: Covariance Selection, Automatic Matrix Differentiation Divided differences and the linear exponential family.
I live in Cortlandt Manor, next to the beautiful Blue Mountain reservation.
My interests are:

Mountain Biking: Check out the trails in my backyard: Blue Mountain Trailway.
Chess: I am pretty bad at it, but I play mostly blitz on lichess.
