I am a second-year PhD Student in Computer Science at the University of Colorado - Boulder. My advisors are Liz Bradley and Jed Brown.

In a semi-recent past life, I worked as a mechanical engineer and registered U.S. patent agent. Specializing in thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, and manufacturing, I wrote and prosecuted over 100 patent applications on a broad range of hardware and software technologies. Some of my other projects include numerous computational models simulating biomechanical growth and remodeling, cardiac electrical pacing, combustion engines, and cogeneration plants.

In my free time, I am an active church and choral musician, recovering competitive swimmer, amateur bike builder, and proud Golden Retriever parent.
