My major contributions are historical United States Census population data for cities and towns (and boroughs and villages and townships and any other form of municipality). Mechanical but somewhat hard to automate given the source formats at the Census Bureau are not OCRed. That being said, if someone who has the expertise/authority with bots would write one to update Census population estimates annually, that would be nice, since that would be fairly easy to automate (indeed, a large amount of information has already been added to Wikipedia this way).
I have also done a good amount of vandalism reversion; User:ClueBot_NG is absolutely amazing for a lot of vandalism, but machine learning and natural language processing is still a long way away from catching more subtle vandalism.
Areas of Expertise/Knowledge
- Cryptography, in particular lattice-based cryptography (I am a Ph.d. candidate at the Georgia Institute of Technology and have published several papers in the field).
