Matthew Johnson is a Computer Science Ph.D. student advised by Dr. Deborah L. McGuinness and a research scientist with the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL). He has a Masters in Computer Engineering from Rochester Institute of Technology where he researched the effectiveness of L1-PCA embeddings for face recognition algorithms run on occluded images.
Matt's current research interests lie in developing systems that address real-world problems using machine learning and semantic web technology to enhance each other. Currently, he is working under the National Institutes of Health's (NIH) Human Health Exposure Analysis Resource (HHEAR) program developing tools to semi-automatically align exposure study data to knowledge graphs for future analysis.
In his free time, Matt enjoys playing board games along with Dungeons & Dragons with his friends.
