Porter is extremely excited to be joining the faculty at BYU. His main area of research is Artificial Intelligence, where he tries to help machines learn a little bit more like humans. He received a PhD from Penn State studying machine learning and data mining, and BS in Statistics from BYU.
Apart from academic experience, Porter has built real-world Machine Learning applications at nCino, Domo, and Pinterest. He is a proud father of three and will gladly admit he married well outside of his league. In his scarce free time he loves to mountain bike, snowboard and occasionally play electric guitar.
