About Me

I am a recent (Spring 2016) CSU graduate with my degree in the Computer Science, Psychology, and Applied Computing Technology (Human Centered Computing concentration). Come August (2016) I will be attending University of Anirzona as a graduate student pursuing a Ph.D. in Computer Science, researching programming languages, compilers, and high performace computing, and their applications in scientific research (such as computational pharmacology). My advisor will by Dr. Michelle Strout.

This past summer (May-August 2015) I worked at Cray with the Chapel team working on the Chapel programming language (Learn Chapel in Y minutes) interfacing the LAPACK library with Chapel. I'm have been employed by the CS department at CSU as a TA for CS 160 from the spring 2013 to spring 2014 semesters, and previously as a TA for CS 192 during the fall 2012 semester.
