Rebecca Hutchinson was most recently a postdoctoral fellow at Oregon State University. She is affiliated with both the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and the Department of Forest Ecosystems and Society under a SEES fellowship (Science, Engineering, and Education for Sustainability) from the National Science Foundation. Before coming to Oregon State, she earned a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University, where she was an NSF graduate research fellow, and she received a B.S.E. in Computer Science from Bucknell University. Her current research develops machine learning methods for ecological problems like species distribution modeling and link prediction for species interaction networks.
