Delighted to see my recent IEEE conference paper finally show up in Google Scholar and the IEEE Digital Library. I truly believe that the next wave of innovative technology solutions will embrace Affective Computing, i.e. computing systems that understand and adapt to human emotion.

Journey's End

Journey’s End

There is finally light at the end of the tunnel! I’ve submitted my dissertation to my mentor, who is reviewing it for any last minute changes. I should be defending my dissertation in 2 weeks 1 week.

This is it…

Final Defense

Final Defense

It is finally here…my final quarter as a doctoral candidate starts in a little over a week. If all goes well, in 2 months I should complete my final dissertation defense and become Dr. Moon. 

Resumed doctoral program

Posted on 2017/01/03

After a truly hideous 18 months that resulted in many life changes and temporarily leaving my doctoral program, I resumed it on January 3rd, 2017. If all goes well, I will be doing a preliminary defense towards the end of this term, and the final defense the following term, for a summer 2017 graduation.

Term 12 Complete, only Dissertation Defense remains

Posted on 2015/09/19

Today, on pirate day 2015, I completed the 12th term of my doctoral program. All core classes are complete. I plan to take 1 to 2 more terms to finish polishing up my dissertation, and hopefully defend it by April 2016.

New Hat

New Hat

In memory of the poor buzzard that hit the glider I was flying a week ago, I had a commemorative hat made. Rest in peace little guy. I’m really sorry.
