Hey there! My name is Evan Oman, I am currently a Software Engineer at Black River Systems Co. where I help develop technical solutions for ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance) defense contracts. I have my Masters Degree in Applied Mathematics and I am very interested in Natural Language Processing, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Software Development. See my complete resume, Github Account, sample projects, and other credentials for more information on my background. Outside of my day job I am participating in a few Kaggle Competitions, working my way through Introduction to Statistical Learning, answering questions on Stack Overflow, and always trying to learn something new about math, programming, or Linux. Some of my non-professional interests include drinking lots of coffee, motorcycling (I own a 1981 Honda CB 750), reading non-fiction, listening to podcasts, spending time with my wife Aubrey, and taking care of our newborn son, Liam.
I went to Becker High School in central Minnesota where I played football, participated in competitive speech, and met my future wife. From there I attended Bethany Lutheran College in Mankato, MN where I studied Mathematics, Computer Science, and Engineering receiving my B.A. degree in Math in 2013, finishing college in only 3 years. One of my main occupations at Bethany was Student Senate, where I served as Student Body President for the 2012-2013 school year. From 2013-2015 I studied Math and Computer Science at the University of Minnesota-Duluth while working as a TA and later as a Technology Research Assistant. In May 2015 I graduated with my Masters of Science in Applied and Computational Mathematics with a minor in Computer Science. After graduation I started working at Black River Systems, got married, and moved to Eagan, MN where my wife, my son, my dog, my cat, and I currently reside.
