About

I'm a third year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at UC Santa Cruz. I'm interested in systems research, specifically real-time systems, high performance computing, and large-scale storage systems. I currently work in the Systems Research Lab at UCSC, and my advisor is Carlos Maltzahn. I received a B.S. from The University of Kansas where I studied with my advisor, Dr. Douglas Niehaus. At Kansas I worked in the KU Systems Programming research group on projects involving thread scheduling, operating system supported custom programming models, and system performance evaluation.
