Here is my little corner of the web where I share some of the exciting things I am doing. I am a computer scientist who is passionate about making high performance systems easier to use, and sharing that passion through teaching and outreach activities that promote diversity.

Currently I am an Assistant Professor in the computer science department at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. See the other pages for information about current activities. You will also find my schedule and contact information above.

Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Computer Science and Math Group at Oak Ridge National Laboratory working under David Bernholdt. My research activities at ORNL included developing and maintaining a coupling framework for a fusion energy simulation project, and exploring the composition of codes using different threading models (see Research and Publications for more information).

In 2010, I received my PhD in computer science from Indiana University's School of Informatics and Computing (SOIC) under the direction of Dr. Randall Bramley.

My more current CV can be found here but the formatting and order is not great. You can find an older version of my CV in a nicer format here.
