Um... ::shyly waves:: greetings?
I'm Cody, a recent Ph.D. graduate in computer science from the University of Georgia, and alumnus of Mercer University with a bachelor's degree in the same subject. (Appropriate name for a programmer, I know...) I now work for Nuance Communications as a research engineer in natural language processing (obligatory legal disclaimer that any edits I make here are entirely my own, and are not made as a representative of the company).
As you might have guessed from the intro to this profile, I'm quite the introvert. I can be social when I want-- just don't expect me to be outgoing for long periods of time. For those who are into Myers-Briggs personality types, I'm an INTP... though I'm not sure that means a lot to many of you, heh.
Oh, yeah, you might also know me from the National Spelling Bee; I placed fourth back in 1997. The number on my placard was 38, and, well, it just sort of stuck with me as part of my username ever since then.
