Katherine M. Kinnaird (Ph.D. Dartmouth College 2014) researches the dimension reduction problem, representing high-dimensional and noisy sequential data as a low-dimensional object that encodes relevant information. She applies her work to tasks from the interdisciplinary field of Music Information Retrieval (MIR), such as locating the chorus of a given musical song or finding all copies of a particular recording of a song. She is originally from Maryland but most recently from Vermont. As a result, she is torn as to whether Old Bay or Maple syrup makes all things better.
