When not engaged with cutting-edge technology for data mining and other arcane pursuits, he likes to drive his not-so-cutting-edge 1969 MGB at moderate speeds on windy rural roads. Bob has a Master of Science in Information Systems degree from the Univ. of Maryland, Baltimore County (Go Retrievers!) as well as a master's degree and a Graduate Certificate in Data Science from the Indiana University School of Information, Computing and Engineering. He is continually disappointed that two master's degrees do not add up to a doctorate.
