Jacob Hunter, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory - Richland, WA USA
I am currently working at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory as a Post-Bachelors Research Associate in the Data Sciences Team in the National Security Directorate. My research focuses on optimizing resource models to explain performance of people in large data sets. My research incorporates the use of stochastic processes and information theory, as well as deep learning. I enjoy learning and applying tools and concepts to explain complex systems, and I look forward to continuing to learn more advanced concepts.
I graduated from Whitworth University with a BS in Physics and a BA in Math. I’m excited to collaborate with other scientists from around the world. In my spare time, I enjoy swing and lindy hop and playing strategy and board games.
