I am a first-year PhD student in Computer Science at the University of Colorado, Boulder. My advisor is Xiao-Chuan Cai.
I received my Master Degree from University of Denver in 2011, advised by Matthew Rutherford. My research at DU focused on memory bandwith optimization using GPUs.
Presently, my research interests include parallel computation and algorithms, general purpose computing using GPUs, the Fast Multipole Method, numerical algorithms, and large scale scientific software.
I currently work at Tech-X Corporation as a software developer. At Tech-X I mostly work on GPU solutions to problems involving the fast multipole method and other computational physics applications.
