Currently I am the Director of Research at EyeVerify, Inc., helping one of Kansas City's leading edge technology companies develop it's roadmap into the future. And, I can attest to the fact that it will be a very exciting future. I am also an instructor at the University of Kansas, teaching classes in mathmatical optimization, predictive analytics, corporate innovation and entrepreneurship. Before my academic and research career, I have had had the good fortune to work with a large, international consulting company that afforded me opportunities to develop and implement complex, enterprise-wide business processing systems for companies in the US, Europe and Asia. My current positions allow me to work at the intersection of several of my personal passions - leading edge technology, innovation and making the world a better place for those that follow us.
