I am a recent Computer Science graduate from Bloomsburg University and soon to be PhD student at the University of Rochester with hopes to concentrate in High-Performance Computing. I have interests and experience in the low-level areas such as compilers, operating systems, and the design and implementation of high-performance data structures. My love for computer science extends to both theory and application, and as such I am very fond of producing the higher-level abstractions that provide quality-of-life.
I am a previous Google Summer of Code student for Cray’s Chapel programming language, and I am now a Rails Girls Summer of Code coach. I currently am an external collaborator for Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) and Northwest Institute for Advanced Computing (NIAC), for a collaborative project between Cray and PNNL on improving the Chapel programming language to better support irregular applications such as graph algorithms.
