I have a post-doc position at the University of Tennessee in the Innovative Computing Laboratory. I earned my Ph.D. in computer science at the University of Illinois, where my research investigated the parallel implementation of digital volume correlation, a measurement technique used in experimental mechanics. Michael Heath and John Lambros were my advisors for my graduate studies. Generally, my research interests lie in scientific computing and parallel computing. See my research page for more information. My math genealogy (svg) is available, courtesy of David Alber’s geneagrapher program, In past lives, I’ve worked at InterVarsity Press, NCSA, and Lawrence Livermore National Lab.
In my “copious free time,” I enjoy reading, hiking, wood working, road and mountain biking, baking, programming (as if research wasn’t enough), and playing with Legos. Why do they put an upper age limit on Legos boxes? I still enjoy them, and am definitely out of the “ages 6–12” range. While I’ve lived 92% of my life in flat Illinois, I yearn for mountains. Above is a picture of me and my dad at Stanley Canyon, in front of the ice water fall. Maybe someday I’ll achieve moving to the mountains, instead of just visiting. I’m not much of an artist, but I doodled in some early classes.
