I am a Ph.D. student at U.C. Berkeley interested in statistics and machine learning. Before coming to Berkeley, I was a student at Arizona State University, where I studied mathematics and economics and worked on research in machine learning and dynamical systems. I did my master's thesis under Dr. Sebastien Motsch in the mathematics department at ASU. I also worked at Amazon.com for a while, and have consulted with a number of Phoenix-based companies on machine learning projects. For details, see my CV. I'm always interested in working on cool projects; if you want to collaborate, contact me at theisen [at] berkeley.edu.
I also love to travel and spend as much time outdoors as possible. I always take my camera with me wherever I go - feel free to check out some of my photos.
