I am currently a postdoc in the Department of Computer Science at The University of Virginia. I recently returned to U.Va. after having spent the previous year as a software developer at NVIDIA. I completed my Ph.D. in August 2007. My dissertation under the direction of Profs. Kevin Skadron and David Luebke addresses the problem of reliability in the domain of graphics hardware. As an early part of my dissertation work, I developed Qsilver, the first academic graphics processor simulation framework for commodity hardware. My graduate research was supported by a fellowship from ATI.
My Erdös Number is at most 7.
I recently suggested a useful new feature to google.
I earned my M.S. from the Department of Computer and Information Sciences at Temple University. At Temple, I was involved with a project aiming to develop a fault tolerant, distributed computing environment. I worked with Dr. Longin Jan Latecki in video mining research, and I completed my Master's Project under the direction of Dr. Paul Wolfgang, where I developed an object oriented compiler in C++.
I earned my undergraduate degree from Millersville University where I was a member of the NCAA Division I Wrestling team. While at Millersville, I participated in a research project developing virtual surgical trainers under Roger W. Webster, Ph.D. of the Millersville University Department of Computer Science, and Randy Haluck, M.D. and Mike Melkonian, M.D. of the Penn State University College of Medicine.
