Below you can download both my resume and curriculum vitae. Along with my research and work experience, my CV includes additonal information about my publications, awards, projects, and acheivements.


I am a recent graduate of the University of Chicago with a Ph.D. in Computer Science. My research was focused in areas of programming languages/compilers, computer graphics, and Functional Reactive Programming. Prior to graduate school, I earned my B.S. degree in Computer Science from California Polytechnic State University.

Here are a few tidbits that I enjoy doing:

  • Hiking and running (not much hiking in Chicago) but running down the lakefront is amazing.

  • Listening to music and discovering new music (thanks Pandora) are hobbies I can't live without. I also like going to local shows (Thank you Schubas).

  • Learning more about computer graphics/animation. In particular, watching 3D animations captivate me because it's truly remarkable to see animated or generated graphic become more realistic.

  • Screaming at the tv while watching Tennis. I'm a huge tennis fanatic!

  • Interactive with people in social settings. I really do feel that learning from different viewpoints/perspectives allows you to become a better rounded person. :)
