These included business intelligence applications using SQL Server and PowerBI addressing project management, resource allocation and cost reporting.  He completed Coursera’s Data Science Certification (in R) and Andrew Ng’s Neural Network Certification (in Python).

In his most recent work, Kevin prototyped a product recommender web service for an industrial supplier, applied the Google Object Detection Framework to extracting radar reflections from ionosphere images. Currently as an Astronomy researcher at CU/Boulder, Kevin is applying machine learning techniques to the Gaia astronomical catalog to identify members of star clusters.
