I started Black Box Operations back in 2007, focused primarily on website and web application development. While there was a bit of research involved, most of the R&D was kept off to the sides. Black Box Operations served as a platform to solidify an infrastructure, increase visibility of our business and our work, and increase the breadth of our client base to ensure steady, reliable revenue streams. Since then, our offerings have expanded to include platform, software, mobile, and systems development (B2B), as well as offering various services through hosted platforms (B2C).
Black Box Operations has worked with companies and organizations such as Literacyhead, InTopic Media, Pink Ribbon Story Foundation, and The Office of International Education and The Oxford Program at The University of Georgia. Black Box has invested a great deal of time innovating and adapting its own research, and implementing the hosted platforms and systems necessary for deployment, support, long-term maintenance, and evolution of the platforms and systems themselves.
I obtained my PhD in Computer Science with a doctoral minor in Cognitive Psychology at The University of Georgia under the direction of Dr. Eileen Kraemer (Major Professor), Dr. John Miller (Committee Member), and Dr. Jessica Kissinger (Committee Member). My research interests are in the area of Human-computer interaction, behavior modeling and characterization techniques, and <insert almost every type of> analysis, etc. etc. etc.
My initial research involved applying data mining, user characterization, and behavior analysis methodologies to database driven Bioinformatics Resource Center websites to help further understand user behavior as well as provide a simple way to determine the effectiveness of the websites themselves, and has since branched off and out to...well, how much time do you have...because this could take a while. If you'd like to discuss anything further with me over a pot of coffee, pick one of the ways to ping me, and ping away.
