I'm an Associate Professor in the Mathematics and Computer Science Department at the University of Puget Sound. Before my current appointment at Puget Sound, I spent four wonderful years as a member of the faculty in the School of Engineering and Computer Science at Washington State University, Vancouver. Prior to that, I obtained a PhD in Computer Science and Engineering from The Ohio State University, where I was a member of the Systems Research Group. My teaching and research interests include data-intensive computing, data management, and cloud computing.
