Who am I? What is my plan?
Welcome. My name is Tim Weninger, I am a PhD student in Computer Science at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign under the direction of Dr. Jiawei Han. I recently graduated with my Master of Science degree in December of 2008, from Kansas State University. After graduate school I hope to find a job as a research scientist or teach computer science or both.
What am I doing?
Currently, I am a student and resercher in the Data Mining Research Group the University of Illinois working on problems in relationships between entities found in structured and unstructured data.
I am married to Jordan (Vieyra) Weninger. She is also a recent graduate of K-State, with a degree in Music Education.
I find time to stay involved in several activities on campus and abroad. My CV describes lots of things, but I mostly have fun when I spend time with Jordan, watch movies or converse with friends.
In my limited spare time I disassemble and fix things, even if they're not broken. I also keep fairly involved in politics.
How can you reach me?
I respond fairly quickly to emails sent to email@example.com, and I always have my cell phone on at +1 (620) 664-7020. I maintain an office at the Siebel Center for Computer Science in Urbana, IL, and I can sometimes be contacted with GTalk instant messenger system via firstname.lastname@example.org. You'll also find me on Facebook and LiveJournal, but I have an aversion to blog-sites, so I rarely check my accounts.
