Brief bio

Welcome to my website. I’ve been meaning to set up a professional website for some time and here it is. I figured I would start off my blogging career with a brief biography about myself.

I was born and grew up in Syracuse, New York. It was such a fantastic city that I decided to attend college at Syracuse University. There, I spent a fair amount of my time in Carnegie Hall (to the left) studying mathematics. I graduated in 2009 Magna Cum Laude with a B.S. in mathematics.

After college, I attended graduate school, studying applied mathematics at Temple University in Philadelphia. After 6 years I graduated with a Ph.D. in 2015. My advisor was Professor Daniel B. Syzld and I worked on speeding up the solution of a particular class of linear system.

After graduate school, I worked as a postdoctoral research associate for two years in the School of Computer Science at the University of Manchester in the U.K. There, I helped to build the Manchester Thermal Analyzer, a thermal simulator for 3-D integrated circuits in the group of Professor Vasilis Pavlidis.

After my postdoc, I worked for Next Ocean, a start up company in Delft, the Netherlands. I was the lead software engineer and helped to build their wave prediction software. One of the highlights of working there was winning the Best Innovation Award at the 2017 Offshore Energy and Exhibition Conference.
