Worked on assignment for the U. S. Geological Survey (USGS) Lower Mississippi – Gulf Water Science Center (LMG WSC) assisting them with data management and analysis & computer modeling.

Provided R Trainings for both TSU students/faculty & USGS colleagues.

Wrote computer models, in R, to calculate the water-surface forced evaporation and long-term average hydroelectric-reservoir evaporation for surface-water based thermoelectric power plants.

Created R programs to aid in the computation of sediment concentrations and loads at streamflow stations.

Programmed and troubleshooted R codes while using the EGRET R-package for the analysis of seasonal changes in nutrient loading and stream flow used in the SPARROW model.

Produced R programs to calculate the mean and median depth at USGS stream gaging stations.

Physical Science Technician, May 2012 – April 2013
August 2011 – September 2011
USGS Tennessee Water Science Center
Nashville, TN

Developed and troubleshooted R codes while using the EGRET R-package for the analysis of seasonal changes in nutrient loading and stream flow for sites used in the SPARROW model.

Made R programs to calculate the mean and median depth at USGS stream gaging stations.

Graduate Student Researcher, January 2011 – August 2012
TSU Civil and Environmental Engineering Department
Nashville, TN

Researched the fate and transport mechanisms of contaminants in karst aquifer systems.

Derived a residence time distribution (RTD) function based on the gamma distribution to better model non-ideal flow, in particular karst aquifers.

Developed GNU Octave code, as a dynamic computer model, and used LibreOffice Calc to apply the gamma-derived RTD to laboratory and field data.

Principal, November 2007 – Present

Nashville, TN

Performing R programming tasks for clients and/or myself, including the creation and maintenance of R packages (iemisc, iemiscdata, and install.load).

Notable Projects
Created R scripts and functions to visualize the ecological interactions between viruses and bats based on their location.

Created an R package to perform fuzzy matching on two large databases to be merged together.

Project Engineer, October 2005 – November 2007
Rutherford County Landfill
Murfreesboro, TN

Directed, oversaw, and managed landfill operations and activities.

Reviewed County subdivision hydrologic and hydraulic stormwater drainage design calculations; performed hydrologic and hydraulic drainage calculation comparisons; researched USGS and TDOT drainage designs.
