About Me

(This site lists my current work at KIT. For a comprehensive list, please see my full site.)

I am a hard-working technophile who is committed to open science and equality in education. My goal is to produce innovative high-quality research, and use my extensive research and practical experience to effectively teach and mentor the next generation of computer scientists.

In 2011, I received a PhD in Computer Science from University of California, Irvine under the advisement of David Eppstein and Mike Goodrich. From there, I worked in research and development in Intel's Computational Lithography Group until 2014. Now, I am a postdoctoral researcher with Peter Sanders at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.
