I received my PhD in Computer Science from Montana State University in the Spring of 2017. My dissertation was entitled: Scheduling for Optimized Network Resource Utilization #SmartGrid #Cloud. During my studies, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to intern at Blackmore Sensors and Analytics, Google, and MIT's Lincoln Laboratory. After graduation, I spent 15 months as a postdoc at Los Alamos National Laboratory researching infrastructure design algorithms related to carbon capture and storage, before returning to MSU for a faculty position. Prior to pursuing a PhD, I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a BS in Mathematics (2007) and Johns Hopkins University with an MS in Applied Mathematics (2010). While attending Johns Hopkins, I worked for the US Army evaluating the effectiveness of weapon systems.
Though my wife and I both hail from Pittsburgh, I spent many summers as a child in Bozeman, and we both now spend the majority of our free time exploring the vast outdoors that Montana has to offer.
